Where our Water Comes From

Water is a precious resource in South Australia and is fundamental to our lives. 

Water storageThe City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters water supply is sourced primarily from Anstey Hill Reservoir, but is supplemented with water from both the Happy Valley and Hope Valley Reservoirs at various times of the year.

The Anstey Hill water treatment plant is supplied with water from either the River Murray via the Mannum to Adelaide pipeline or from the Milbrook Reservoir.

Hope Valley water treatment plant is supplied with water from the River Murray into the River Torrens system via the Millbrook and Kangaroo Creek Reservoirs.

After treatment, water is delivered to consumers from all plants via the existing potable water reticulation system.
