Mirani reservoir to receive $400k makeover

Published: 07 Nov 2022

Council is about to begin works on upgrades to the Mirani No.3 reservoir.

The ground-level reservoir, located on Mirani-Bolden Road, provides water storage for the Mirani township.

Mayor Greg Williamson said the refurbishment works would increase the life span of the reservoir.

“We are spending more than $400,000 on these works to the external face and roof of the Mirani No.3 reservoir to repair cracks and water leaks,” Mayor Williamson said.

“This will eliminate the need to build a new reservoir in the near future saving ratepayers money,” he said.

The works are set to begin mid-November and are expected to run until the end of March 2023, weather permitting.

Work will take place Monday to Saturday between 6.30am to 6.30pm.

Impacts to residents are expected to be minimal with some possibly experiencing low water pressure at times during works.

Motorists using Mirani-Boldon Road are asked to be cautious as additional trucks will be entering and exiting the site. Traffic signs will be in place.
