In December 2018 the roof of the 9ML reservoir at One Tree Hill was damaged in a storm. The roof structure was damaged to such a point that it could not be repaired and a full replacement was required.

The reservoir is a key part of the Tamworth Water Supply network and supplies water to Hillvue, South Tamworth, Westdale, Kingswood and Calala.

This page provides updates on the refurbishment progress and a space for impacted residents to ask any questions in regards to the project.
