The Urannah Water Scheme is a new bulk water entity for North Queensland and comprises of a 1.5 million ML dam to be built at Urannah and approximately 200km of pipelines to Moranbah and Proserpine.
The dam will be approximately 1.5 times the size of Sydney Harbour.
The capacity of Urannah Dam will be almost 80% of the Burdekin Falls Dam while taking up less than 20% of the land area. The dam will provide up to 150,000 ML of water per year.
The Urannah Water Scheme is strategically located to maximise reliability and yield for changing seasons and climate change.
