Kanithi Balancing Reservoir (KBR) is a reservoir in Ukkunagaram, Visakhapatnam, India. It's the water source for the entire vizag steel plant and steel plant township.

This large mass of water reservoir is for the captive consumption of the plant and the township alike and sits between the Township and the NH5. It draws its water from a special canal built exclusively for it from the River Yeleru, a tributary of the Great river Godavari.

It spans 2.2 km by 2.0 km.
