Establishing water security
The Rookwood Weir is a landmark project that will capture valuable water in the lower Fitzroy, ultimately generating new economic & employment opportunities including intensive agricultural industry development. It will also support urban and industrial growth and water security.
The design and construction of the $352 Rookwood Weir will be managed by Sunwater (construction authority, operator & water marketer), GHD (designer) and McCosker Contracting and Lendlease Engineering (constructor). Funding for the project by the State and Federal Governments is fully committed and early works have commenced with the weir construction anticipated to be completed in 2023.
