Councillor David Schefe, Portfolio Chair for Utilities said the new bore will become the primary water source for Mitchell residents and businesses improving water flows, water pressure and fire-fighting capacity.
"With the placement of the new bore (adjacent to the southern reservoir on Mitchell Saint George Road), it will feed directly into the southern reservoir which is able to feed water to the town by gravity, reducing energy costs significantly," Cr Schefe said.
"The two other bores currently in Mitchell will then provide a backup supply for the town, especially during the peak summer period."

The Mitchell Bore project is a joint initiative of Maranoa Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
