Urban Utilities and our delivery partner, Diona, will construct a new 1.5ML water reservoir and water pipeline in Esk. Located at 104 Highland Street. the new reservoir will improve the reliability and resilience of the water supply network servicing the Esk township.
The project was estimated to start construction in early 2023 however, due to schedule changes and market supply issues the project has been delayed. We will advise when the project start date has been rescheduled.
Although there has been a pause in construction of the Esk reservoir, the initial investigations have had a positive outcome.
By doing network modelling and re-configuration, we were able to reduce the construction footprint by reducing the length of new pipeline to be installed along Highland Street by 600 metres. The pipeline will now run from the new reservoir site at 104 Highland Street.

Currently we are doing hydraulic investigations and network checks in the region including Toogoolawah and Calcite reservoirs.
We are still working hard to get things moving despite the delays and expect construction to commence within the next few months. Construction should last approximately eight months subject to weather and site conditions.
