Rookwood Weir ProjectFitzroy River
Sunwater is committed to delivering water for prosperity, benefiting Central Queensland communities, agriculture and industrial enterprise.
Water sales and landholder support
Once complete, Rookwood Weir will be the largest weir operated by Sunwater in regional Queensland.
This valuable new water source will bring much-needed water security as well as economic growth and jobs for Central Queenslanders.
In May 2020, Sunwater invited landholders and investors to discuss their water needs and the opportunity to secure a water allocation from Rookwood Weir through a two-step process; Tender One providing for lots of 500 ML and greater and Tender Two, which closed in February 2023, providing for smaller lots of between 10 ML and 500 ML.
Sunwater, in collaboration with Advance Rockhampton, launched a landholder support and grants program to provide landholders with business information and advice prior to Tender Two. The program closed at the end of October 2022 and information about the program is available under the Landholder Support Program drop-down below.
