Information

The Cloncurry Weir is an essential piece of infrastructure to further drought-proof the town and provide a safe and reliable water supply for residents.

A sustainable water supply is an essential Council service. Recent years of below-average rainfall highlighted the need for Council to construct additional infrastructure to secure long-term water storage.

The Weir completed in February 2014 has proven to be a valuable asset to Council and is a long-term water storage solution.

The Weir also supports economic development through the provision of adequate water for industry.

Fast Facts
• Completed in February 2014
• Secures an additional 700 mega litres of water in the Cloncurry River
• Ability to harvest 35 mega litres per day into Chinaman Creek Dam which equates to eight days of town usage per day of harvesting
• The water held by the Weir replenishes river aquifers and shallow fractures rock aquifers
• $150,000 of works were funded by the Queensland State Government Local Government Grants Subsidy Program.
