Water carting operation lashed by councillors

A PITCH to harvest nearly 120ML of water from the Lockyer Valley has been dealt a blow, with the council refusing to give the developer a discount to make it happen.

Town planner Allan Van told the Gatton Star the plan was likely to sell the water for bottling.
