Division 3 Councillor Adam Hain has announced council will upgrade the water supply intake system at Caboolture’s largest sport and recreation precinct, Centenary Lakes.
Council today awarded a $274,000 tender for the first stage of a major upgrade for the precincts’ five lakes, which includes the installation of two new pumps and the construction of new pump control board with an electrical and pump controller.
“These new pumps will rejuvenate the Western lake, lower the amount of sediment and combat stagnating water,” Cr Hain said.
“It’ll mean improved environmental outcomes for the local ecosystem, and improved amenity of this popular sporting and recreation hub.
Works are expected to commence July 2018 and take approximately 13 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Cr Hain said the announcement is stage one of a three stage upgrade for the lake system and coincides with council and the state government’s $1.3 million Centenary Lakes landscape and construction project.
“Earlier this year I joined Mark Ryan to launch a new project at Centenary, which will overhaul the aging parklands and with new landscaping and park amenities, while also helping to skill 40 local jobseekers.
“These projects combined will help ensure Centenary Lakes can continue to be enjoyed by families, visitors and our sporting clubs for years to come.”

Moreton Bay Regional Council has commenced construction on the major $7.8 million Morayfield Sport and Events Centre upgrade.
Division 12 Councillor Adrian Raedel joined contractors and construction crews on Thursday, June 7 to turn the first sod and mark the commencement of works.
“There’s no disputing that sporting events and trade shows are huge economic generators for communities, which is why we’re doubling MSEC’s size to 7,000m2. We want to support local jobs, businesses and sporting clubs and attract larger sports carnivals and conferences to this part of Moreton Bay,” Cr Raedel said.
“The sod turn marks the first major milestone in this project, which will see will see two new multipurpose courts constructed together with a new events space for conferences and trade shows, adding to the three popular multi-purpose courts.
“The upgrade will also see new retractable seating for more than 1,000 spectators plus new changerooms, amenities and a commercial-grade kitchen.
Works are expected to be complete mid-2019, weather permitting.
“MSEC will be fully operational and continue to host local sporting events and functions while the works are underway, including a special basketball workshop in July with NBL legends Cal Bruton, CJ Bruton and their family.”
