Warren ReservoirAbout the Warren Reservoir


The Warren Reservoir was constructed between 1914 and 1916 on the South Para River at a cost of $166,000.


The supervisor for the construction project was Mr Edgar Bradley, who at the same time was the resident engineer overseeing the construction of Millbrook Reservoir.


Due to the “remoteness” of the Warren location Mr Bradley, was given a new Model ‘T’ Ford for $444 and had to learn to drive so he could make the 30 kilometre journey to Warren from Millbrook in just one hour.


Before Mr Bradley received his Ford the trip by horse and buggy took two-and-a-half hours!
