Little Para Reservoir

Little Para Reservoir

The Little Para Reservoir was built between 1974 and 1977, but was not put into use until January 1979. The reservoir functions largely as a balancing storage for River Murray water, which can be pumped in during winter when other demands on the Mannum-Adelaide Pipeline are low.

Since 1979 Little Para has only been full twice: in 1981 and 1992.

Capacity: 20,800 megalitres.

If this reservoir supplied the whole state, how long would this last? About 35 days.

Area of water spread: 125 hectares.

Public access: No.
