Member for Cootamundra Katrina Hodgkinson today announced funding of up to $10 million from the NSW Government to go towards replacing the sewage treatment plant in Gundagai.
Katrina said the existing sewage plant is nearly 100 years old, and the upgrade will be welcomed by the local community.
“I am delighted to secure this funding for my community, and finally deliver this vital project for Gundagai,” Katrina said.
“The people of my electorate have been asking for this upgrade for some time, and today’s announcement will directly improve the lives of people in the Gundagai community,” she said.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said this is another example of the NSW Government’s commitment to water security and providing crucial infrastructure for regional NSW.
“Through our Water Security for Regions Program the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government has boosted water security and living standards for 1.9 million people,” Mr Barilaro said.
This project is an example of the how the NSW Government is building and upgrading vital water and waste services as part of an on-going infrastructure boom in regional NSW.
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council is working with the NSW Government to complete the engineering design and planning for the new sewage treatment plant, and today’s announcement confirms the NSW Government will support it.
