Outlook murky for Killarney s water supply
THE future of Killarney s fluctuating water supply will be clearer by March, when results of a council commissioned report are due. Warwick Shire Mayor Ron Bellingham said it would take the best part of a year to implement the proposals once the report was released. Once received it must be submitted to the Department of Local Government for approval so we can obtain a subsidy, while a detailed design of any construction work will be required before tenders are called to carry out the construction, Cr Bellingham said. Cr Bellingham said tighter water restrictions would be the council s first option if levels dropped too low in the meantime. (Following that) we would introduce recreation reserve bore water into the system or truck water from Wallace Street, Warwick, to Killarney s Hope Street Reservoir, he said. There is no feasible prediction on how long the current supply will last, but the Killarney abattoir s bores have not been considered.
