Murray Shire council has received a cost breakdown of the alternative raw water supply to Moama Recreation Reserve.
Engineering services director Leigh Robins presented a report on the issue at council’s ordinary meeting at Bunnaloo on Tuesday.
Council resolved at its ordinary meeting on April 15 that a further report be provided.
The total estimated cost was $248,500, including $25,000 for contingency and $55,000 for three-phase power to the site.
Cr Gen Campbell questioned the need for three-phase power and the contingency amount.
Mr Robins stressed the report was an estimate and that ‘‘you’re not going to spend a quarter of million dollars on a design’’ without the correct contingency.
General manager Margot Stork said it was standard for a contingency value to be between 10 and 15 per cent of the total.
Cr Geoff Mackenzie said the cost was excessive and the entire project could instead cost between $50,000 and $60,000.
Cr Chris Bilkey told council he would accept the expertise of Mr Robins.
The report was noted by council.
