Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve

Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve

Capacity: 12.6 gigalitres (that would fill 6,300 Olympic swimming pools]

The Happy Valley Reservoir was completed in 1897. In addition to water from its reserve, the reservoir receives water from Mount Bold Reservoir via the Clarendon Weir.

The Happy Valley Water Treatment plant, which treats much of Adelaide’s drinking water, is located within the reservoir reserve.

Public access: Both land based and on water public access is the vision for Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve and community consultation will be commencing in near future.
