The pipeline information meeting is at the Willow Tree Hall on Monday at 5.30pm.

“Over the last few years, and particularly as a result of extended dry periods, the current water supply at Willow Tree has been unable to meet requirements, necessitating the trucking of water from Quirindi, in itself an expensive exercise,” LPSC acting general manager Ron Van Katwyk.

“Despite various attempts, council has been unable to find an alternative supply in the local area, resulting in a pipeline being the only viable option to provide a safe, secure supply into the future.”

The council secured $4.825 million in state government funding to construct a pipeline from Quirindi to Willow Tree and a reservoir in Willow Tree.

The Review of Environmental Factors for the project is on public exhibition until Monday, August 24.

“Specialist council staff will bein attendance at the meeting todiscuss the project and answer any questions the community may have,” Mr Van Katwyk said.

“This is a major project forWillow Tree and I encourage all interested parties to attend.”
