Beginning 11 March 2015, Seqwater will be conducting refurbishment works on the number one reservoir at Wellers Hill Reservoir, Marshall Road, Tarragindi.

Recent inspections have identified leaks and structural damage to No. 1 Reservoir, which will be taken offline for repair and maintenance work. No. 2 Reservoir will remain online for the duration of the refurbishment work, and we do not expect any disruption to your water supply.

Work on the reservoir is expected to commence on 11 March 2015 for approximately five months, subject to weather conditions or any other unforeseen delays.

Normal work hours will be between 6.30am and 5.00pm, Monday to Saturday. No after hours or public holiday works are planned at this stage.

What to expect:

  • Increased large vehicle movements on Marshall Road, with traffic management in place on an as-required basis.
  • Some construction noise including crane movements, drilling and excavation work.
  • Noise from water flows and other maintenance activities.
  • Seqwater contractors accessing the reservoir area with maintenance vehicles and construction machinery, including cranes.

These refurbishment works are all necessary to maintain our commitment to a safe, secure and sustainable water supply for south east Queensland.
