THE major concrete pour has started in the construction of sewage treatment plants in Cannonvale and Proserpine.
The massive concrete tank at Cannonvale will measure 36 metres wide by 34 metres long and six metres high and will form the major component of the project while the Proserpine plant is a smaller structure.
Council's mayor, Jennifer Whitney said this was a significant milestone in the construction of the new sewage treatment plants.
"Cannonvale currently has 85 per cent of the floor slab complete while Proserpine's floor slab is already complete," Cr Whitney said.
She said the sheer size of these projects was enormous and the concrete works alone totalled about $3.3 million.
The concrete work on the tanks is expected to be complete by late December 2012.
