Urban Utilities is committed to excellence in water and sewerage services that meet the evolving needs of our customers and enhance our communities.
Our delivery partner, Downer WSP, will soon start essential upgrades across two sites, Outlook Water Reservoir located on Outlook Drive, Mount Gravatt and Azanian Street booster pump station, Upper Mount Gravatt. The project will include mechanical and electrical upgrades at the pump station and reservoir as well as installation of monitoring systems across several locations in and around Mount Gravatt, Upper Mount Gravatt and Macgregor.
Construction is expected to commence from mid-August 2023, and will take four months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.
Works will occur at several locations in the project area gradually (refer to map over the page). There will be site offices and laydown areas including vehicle and machinery entry and exit off Shire Road, Mount Gravatt Outlook Drive and Azanian Street, Upper Mount Gravatt.
- Pump station upgrade work involves replacement of electrical assets inside the pump station building, surrounding footpath, and nature strip.
- We do not anticipate potential for water outages; however, we will mitigate any changes throughout the project by informing and update impacted stakeholders of possible water outages as required, to reduce the amount of water downtime experienced by the community.
- Construction is expected to commence from mid-August 2023 and will take up to four months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting. We will notify residents and businesses in these areas before any work takes place.
- Most of the work will be done during the day from Monday to Friday between 6:00am and 6:00pm some Saturday and night work may be required; we will notify all impacted customers.
