Moorabool Shire were successful in obtaining funding to improve telecommunications under the Federal Government’s Strengthening Telecommunications Against Natural Disasters (STAND) Program.
Funding will be used to provide wifi internet via NBN to the following:
- Coimadai CFA Shed
- Dunnstown Recreation Reserve
- Elaine Mechanics Hall
- Gordon Public Hall
- Korweinguboora Recreation Reserve
- Mount Egerton Hall
- Mt Wallace Public Hall
- Navigators Hall
There is an application that has been submitted by Telstra for the Blackwood area that is still to be determined. We will let you know of the outcome.
In response to the significant storm event in June 2021, Central Highlands Water has installed a generator at the Blackwood Water Treatment Plant.
The new generator has the capacity to provide up to 48 hours of back-up power before needing to be refuelled, meaning that the site can continue to operate remotely and recover quickly in the event of future power outages.
