Liverpool Plains Shire Council, in collaboration with Federal and NSW governments, have built a new treatment plant at Quipolly. 

The Quipolly Water Project has been delivered within budget thanks to funding of $15 million funding from the Australian Government, $10 million from the NSW Government, and $11.9million funding from Liverpool Plains Shire Council. 

Across the region, the Liverpool Plains Shire Council’s new water treatment plant, located at Quipolly Dam, will be able to produce more than
6 million litres of high-quality drinking water per day through a state-of-the-art treatment process.

This project aims to secure the Werris Creek water supply and provide options for the management of Quirindi water supply through the construction of a state of the art water treatment plant near Quipolly Dam and a pipeline to Werris Creek and Quirindi.


The project strives to provide improved water quality with a secure system that meets the needs and growth of the Liverpool Plains Shire now and into the future.

Liverpool Plains Shire Council, working together with Beca HunterH2O, Gongues Constructions and GHD, have been project managing, designing, constructing and testing this critical project, which will enable the treatment of up to 6 million litres of water treated to modern standards and distribution to Werris Creek, Quirindi, Willow Tree and the surrounding areas. The improvement to resilience of the supply will provide health and economic benefits to these regional communities.


The scheme comprises dam works, a treatment plant, approximately 20km of pipelines,  reservoirs, electrical upgrades and related infrastructure that have been the subject of planning and complex engineering for several years.
