Queen Elizabeth II Reservoir maintenance

We’re carrying out essential maintenance on the 128-hectare Queen Elizabeth II Reservoir in Surrey.

What we’re doing

We need to inspect, clean and maintain the tunnels connecting the reservoirs. This will help prevent leaks and maintain the high quality of our drinking water.

To meet legal requirements, we also need to drain down the reservoir. We’ll do this at the same time to avoid repeated disruption around the site.

Where and when we’re working

We’ll be working in phases from April 2021, and we expect to be finished by June 2022.

What impact will it have?

These works won’t affect your water supply.

We’ll do all we can to reduce disruption and keep noise to a minimum. Lighting will be kept low-level, pointing away from any neighbouring properties.

If you run a business and it’s affected, you can find information on our business loss of profits policy here.

Working during the pandemic

We’ve been identified as key workers by the government, and our customers can still expect to see us in their communities providing their essential services. Learn more about how we’re working during the pandemic.
