This morning marked the laying of the foundation stone at Quipolly Dam for the $28.3 million project to secure and improve water quality for Werris Creek.
The significant project is the product of local, state and federal investment.
“The Federal Government funding of $10m has been secured through the Community Development Grants Program. The project secures water supply for the people of Werris Creek and provides options to assist the Shire in managing their water sources,” said Federal representative, Barnaby Joyce.
“This project simply could not have happened without all levels of governments making substantial contributions,” said MP Kevin Anderson,
“The project is a great example of what can be achieved when all levels of governments work together,” said MP Michael Johnsen.
“The NSW Government funding of $10 million was funded from the Safe and Secure Water Program, Federal Government funding of $10m was secured through the Community Development Grants Program, with the remainder being funded by local council at this stage,” concluded Liverpool Plains Shire Council, Mayor, Andrew Hope, who also thanked members of the public for attending today’s significant unveiling.
