Transforming Communities: Our Projects with Urban Utilities

Building Resilient Communities: Diona and Urban Utilities' Journey in Enhancing Essential Water Infrastructure

ESG Alignment

Partnering with Urban Utilities, Diona is involved in sustainable infrastructure projects enhancing water services. Projects include constructing new water filling stations and reservoirs, upgrading existing infrastructure, and ensuring reliable water supply. These efforts are vital for community resilience, especially in rural areas and during dry periods.

SDGs: 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 17 (Partnerships for the Goals)

At Diona, we are proud to collaborate with Urban Utilities, joining forces to enhance the liveability of communities through innovative water solutions. Our joint projects are making meaningful contributions to infrastructure development. Here’s a look at the latest progress and developments in our collaborative efforts:

Tanker Filling Stations

We’ve initiated potholing investigations in Helidon, Grantham, and Glenore Grove to prepare for construction and commissioning of three new water filling stations for commercial and residential use in 2024. These stations are crucial for providing bulk water to key rural areas in Queensland, ensuring that farmers and residents have access to our most precious resource, especially during prolonged dry periods.

Esk Reservoir Project

In Esk, we are constructing a new 1.5ML water reservoir and pipeline to improve the reliability and resilience of the water supply network servicing the township. Additionally, we have completed a concrete footpath along Highland Street, transitioning into a winding gravel walk through woodlands.

Kilcoy Reservoir Upgrade

Using diver-assisted internal connection work, we’re minimising risks to water quality and maintaining full operational capacity during works at the Kilcoy Reservoir Upgrade.

Russell Terrace Pump Station Upgrade

At the Russell Terrace Pump Station, we have installed a new Grundfos booster pump set, accumulator tanks, and an updated electrical system.

Queen Street Project

After more than 14 weeks of night shifts, the upgrade works on Queen Street are almost complete. This includes four network connections, 18 property connections, and over 500 meters of new pipeline, enhancing water supply to numerous businesses and residents. Despite challenges like storm clean-ups and coordinating with events like the FIFA Women’s World Cup, our team has demonstrated how important collaboration, and a one-team approach is.

Looking ahead to 2024, we are excited about the positive impact these sustainable infrastructure projects, in partnership with Urban Utilities, will have on communities. Our joint efforts are set to bring lasting benefits and further our commitment to enhancing the liveability and resilience of the areas we serve.
