Last week the Hells Gates Dam Community Consultation was in full force with more than 50 attendees participating in a Public Forum in Charters Towers in partnership with Charters Towers Regional Council. Sessions were also held with Burdekin Shire Council and Hinchinbrook Shire Council. To support this recent consultation, Townsville Enterprise is also releasing a new animation video explaining exactly what the Hells Gates Dam Irrigation Scheme is all about.
Located in the Upper Burdekin catchment, the Hells Gates Dam Irrigation Scheme offers major new agricultural export opportunities across the region, sustainable electricity generation and long-term water security for Charters Towers.
We're over half way through the Hells Gates Dam Business Case and are on time and on budget for delivery in April 2022.
We thank our regional councils for their engagement on the project and the opportunity to present to the Mayors, Deputy Mayors and Councilors to ensure they are fully informed on the Business Case Townsville Enterprise is Project Managing.
