Could Mr.Duffy's Bremer River 'powerful pipedream' actually work..?

A Mayoral candidate believes protecting Ipswich from flood and improving water quality would be assured, if a hydropower station is built on the Bremer River.

Gary Duffy thinks a raised weir and a power-generating turbine will provide a number of benefits for the city.

Mr.Duffy said safeguards from floodwaters released from Wivenhoe Dam will be guaranteed, if the hydropower station is constructed at the junction of the Bremer and Brisbane Rivers.
