Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council has listed the town’s aging water main system as an area of priority when it comes to spending the remaining $9 million in Stronger Communities funding from the State Government.
Consultation with the community is underway to decide how the money is best spent with a focus on local infrastructure and services projects that deliver long-term economic and social benefits to the community.
Council is proposing to spend $2 million to speed up their current water main peplacement program.
In Gundagai, they are considering putting $2.5 million towards the $7 million needed to replace the Gundagai Sewerage Treatment Plant.
Dirty water has been an issue which has plagued residents and council in recent times.
