Hope Valley Reservoir

Hope Valley Reservoir

The second reservoir built in Adelaide, Hope Valley was completed in 1873. The Reservoir receives water diverted by the Gorge Weir via a tunnel (aqueduct) as well as the Mannum to Adelaide pipeline.

Hope Valley is a service reservoir from which water is distributed. The two larger up-stream reservoirs, Kangaroo Creek and Millbrook, are supply sources.

Capacity: 2.9 gigalitres (one gigalitre is one billion litres), which would fill more than 1,400 Olympic swimming pools

Public access: No
