New reservoir underway to firm up Dalveen’s water reliability
23 November 2020
Works are currently underway on a new 150kL concrete reservoir at Dalveen to improve and future-proof water supply reliability for the local community.
Southern Downs Regional Council has engaged Offaly Civil Engineering Pty Ltd to construct the new reservoir adjacent to the existing reservoir and Council’s construction crew will contribute to the project by building the connecting pipework for the new reservoir to the existing water main.
The existing reservoir will remain in service whilst the construction of the new reservoir and pipeline is underway.
Residents and business owners in the construction area can expect some noise and dust as well as minor traffic disruptions during the working hours of 7am and 5pm Monday to Saturday. Council and Offaly Civil Engineering will monitor and limit disruptions where possible.
The project is expected to be completed towards the end of April 2021, weather permitting.
Council and Offaly Civil Engineering appreciate the community’s patience and cooperation during construction.
The 2019-21 Works for Queensland program is an initiative of the Queensland Government, receiving $300,000 under the 2019-21 Works for Queensland program - round 3 for the Dalveen project.
