Access to the Aspley Reservoir will be temporarily closed, until further notice.

Seqwater contractors working on an upgrade at the Aspley Reservoir found areas of soil containing asbestos on Brisbane City Council land while conducting earthworks.

Soil samples were tested confirming the presence of asbestos cement debris, a common non-friable type of asbestos which poses a very low risk. The soil containing asbestos cement debris is covered and contained and will be removed according to health and safety regulations.

Seqwater contractors will contain and remove any contaminated soil found during the work and ensure the site is clear before work is finished. Once Seqwater has verification the site is clear, work will be undertaken to resurface the area.

Please follow the directions of signage and do not pass any barricades.
