The Isaac Regional Council of Queensland, Australia, has engaged a contractor to remove 12,000 cubic metres of built-up sediment at Theresa Creek Dam near Clermont.
The current water intake tower at Policeman’s Creek channel has four portals for the pumping of raw water to the water treatment plant, which supplies the water source for the township of Clermont. The AU$1.36 million (US$1.03 million) project will return two of the lower portals that are silted over, into service.
Initial stages of the project have commenced, including preparing the site, earthworks and installing a bypass pump before dredging begins after the Easter long weekend.
The council expects the dredging will be completed by May 2021.
