Outer Metro

Outer Metro

Outer metro covers townships and councils to the north, east and south of Adelaide. This includes the Barossa, Murraylands, Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

This area has some of the state's most significant infrastructure. This includes all reservoirs in the Mount Lofty Ranges and major pipelines that deliver water to Adelaide and the Barossa Valley.

There are also nine water, and nine wastewater, treatment plants in the region.

We also manage eleven reservoirs. They are:

  • Barossa
  • Warren
  • South Para
  • Millbrook
  • Kangaroo Creek
  • Hope Valley
  • Little Para
  • Mount Bold
  • Happy Valley
  • Myponga
  • Middle River.

Detailed information on size, capacity and history of each reservoir can be found on our Reservoir page.
