    Improving energy use with solar

  • O'Connor Reservoir Upgrade

    The O'Connor Reservoir, located in the Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve, has been supplying North Canberrans with clean drinking water over the past 60 years. Like most reservoirs around Canberra, it ensures that water is supplied and water pressure is maintained, even during peak demand periods.
