Funding welcomed for Boorowa water security scoping study

12/02/2019
Hilltops Mayor Brian Ingram welcomed an announcement by Member for Goulburn Pru Goward last week that funding has been secured through the NSW Government’s Restart NSW – Safe and Secure Water Program for the Boorowa water security scoping study.
 
 
The Scoping Study will investigate the construction of a new bulk water supply pipeline from Jugiong to Boorowa.

Securing water supply for Boorowa is the number one infrastructure priority for Hilltops Council. The NSW Government is providing up to $265,000 for 50 per cent funding of the estimated cost of $530,000 to complete the study.

Mayor Brian Ingram welcomed the announcement and the support of the State Government in the delivery of a scoping study for the Boorowa water security project.

“This pipeline is the number one infrastructure priority for Hilltops Council, and I look forward to completing the business case so that we can move forward with delivery for the community.”

“Thank you to Pru Goward MP for her help in securing the support of the State Government in providing much needed funding,” Mayor Ingram said.

The Safe and Secure Water Program was established to address key risks to regional water safety and security in NSW, to provide safe, secure and sustainable water and wastewater services to regional NSW towns.
