Urban Utilities is committed to excellence in water and sewerage services that meet the evolving needs of our customers and enhance our communities.
Urban Utilities delivery partner, Diona, is working to maintain one of Helidon’s two reservoirs. This includes replacing the reservoir’s roof support columns, repairs to its roof and works that will allow the two reservoirs to operate independently. This work will reduce the risk of water supply contamination and help prevent future water interruptions.
Construction started in early December and is expected to continue until late February 2023. This work will be located within the fences of the reservoir site at 70 Seventeen Mile Road and will take place during the day between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
About Helidon’s reservoirs
The reservoirs located on 70 Seventeen Mile Road in Helidon are built from reinforced concrete. Together these reservoirs supply an estimated population of 12,537.
Reservoir R118, with a capacity of 1.5 megalitres, has suffered from corrosion on several of its metal elements, including the internal ladder, roof and the roof support columns.
