Division 3 Councillor Adam Hain has announced council will upgrade the water supply intake system at Caboolture’s largest sport and recreation precinct, Centenary Lakes.
Council today awarded a $274,000 tender for the first stage of a major upgrade for the precincts’ five lakes, which includes the installation of two new pumps and the construction of new pump control board with an electrical and pump controller.
“These new pumps will rejuvenate the Western lake, lower the amount of sediment and combat stagnating water,” Cr Hain said.
“It’ll mean improved environmental outcomes for the local ecosystem, and improved amenity of this popular sporting and recreation hub.
Works are expected to commence July 2018 and take approximately 13 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Cr Hain said the announcement is stage one of a three stage upgrade for the lake system and coincides with council and the state government’s $1.3 million Centenary Lakes landscape and construction project.
“Earlier this year I joined Mark Ryan to launch a new project at Centenary, which will overhaul the aging parklands and with new landscaping and park amenities, while also helping to skill 40 local jobseekers.
“These projects combined will help ensure Centenary Lakes can continue to be enjoyed by families, visitors and our sporting clubs for years to come.”
