It means residents in the northern areas of Roma will now enjoy improved and more reliable water pressure.

The new 1.5ML reservoir project is located adjacent to the Roma Airport and is set to benefit the areas north of Miscamble Street and Taylor Street in addition to other close-by areas. The delivery main has been installed from the bore along Bassett Lane to Northern Road to ensure water pressure distribution to the worst affected areas.

Councillor David Schefe, Portfolio Chair for Utilities says low pressure in these areas should now be a thing of the past.

“The new reservoir and booster system will provide constant water pressure to residents in the immediate area, significantly reducing water pressure spikes and falls. The location of the new bore has been chosen to cater for future growth which is expected in the north and north-west areas of Roma. “Come along to the official opening and see first-hand how the system works”

The additional bore and storage capacity is part of Roma’s Water Strategy ten-year plan to improve water security into the future.

The official opening and plaque unveiling will be held on Tuesday, 26 June 2018 from 9.30am at Bore 19, located on the corner of Currey Street and Bassett Lane, Roma with Special guest, Minister for Local Government, Hon Stirling Hinchliffe MP to officially open both projects.
