Upgrade to 136 million litre water tank to create 250 jobs


A $21.6 million upgrade to SA Water’s largest water storage tank is expected to create 250 jobs.

The upgrade is expected to be complete by the end of this year and will ensure that more than 100,000 residents in Adelaide’s north-east will continue to receive quality water.

Work on the 136 million litre tank is being undertaken by engineering and construction company York Civil.

The main part of the upgrade involves removing and replacing the Hope Valley tank’s 125m x 175m roof. SA Water will also undertake landscaping to restore and improve the site’s amenity and compensate for any vegetation removed during the works.

For more information on this project, call 1300 650 950 or visit www.sawater.com.au

This upgrade is part of a wider $89 million State Government program to refurbish 111 water storage tanks across South Australia between 2016 and 2020.
