A 15,000 litre concrete water tank and trough has been installed on the corner of Grass Tree Break and Fibrosa Break in Plunkett Regional Park for watering horses and filling fire vehicles.
Beaudesert Trail Riders have generously donated these assets to benefit visiting horse riders with better access to drinking water for horses.
After recent road works and a break in wet weather the tank was delivered to site and placed on a pre-prepared pad.
After plumbing work was completed, the tank was filled courtesy of Gotcha Water (thanks to Shane – mobile 0417 611 114).
The tank will also double as a fill point for rural fire vehicles when undertaking planned and emergency fire management activities.
In the coming weeks Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service staff will complete stage two of the project by building a roof over the tank to capture rain water.
Another great community effort in Plunkett Regional Park, and many thanks to all involved!
