Request for Information on Proposed Rookwood Weir

18 April 2017

Demand for water in Central Queensland will be tested as Building Queensland today launches a Request for Information (RFI) in partnership with SunWater and Gladstone Area Water Board.

The RFI seeks information on interest in high priority water from the proposed Rookwood Weir. It is a crucial step in the development of the Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure Project Detailed Business Case, currently being led by Building Queensland.

Up to 42,000 megalitres of high priority water could be available for agricultural and industrial development, in addition to the 34,000 megalitres already set aside for urban and industrial use.

We want to hear from agriculture or industrial businesses as well as potential investors so we can understand the types of demand before further progressing the Business Case.

Understanding the types of demand is critical to ensure the Business Case presents the right infrastructure solution. We are committed to developing rigorous Business Cases supported by evidence to help the Queensland Government make informed investment decisions.

The RFI documentation is available at, with responses due by 12 May 2017.

The Detailed Business Case is anticipated to be completed by Quarter 3 2017, and subsequently presented to GAWB, SunWater, Queensland Government and the Australian Government for consideration.
