Mount Ommaney reservoir was established in 1987 and by undertaking these works we will extend the service life of the asset and future proof the reliability of the reservoir.
What to expect during construction?
- site establishment and laydown areas at the existing reservoir site.
- construction-related noise, dust and minor vibrations from machinery and vehicle movements
- changed traffic conditions within the reservoir site and access road
- safety barriers and signage around the work site, including monitoring and CCTV activities
Construction is expected to take up to five months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.
Most of the work will be done during the day, between 6:30am and 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. There may also be occasional work on Saturdays if required during the project. We will notify the community in advance if Saturday works are planned.
The project team will minimise the construction impacts to the extent possible, including managing noise and dust at the source, utilising traffic control and reviewing work methods as required. We will keep directly impacted neighbours informed by providing regular construction updates during the project. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete this essential work.
