Water Tank On Empty

Water TankOne of the two water tanks in Whyalla has been completely drained as SA Water begin maintenance on the container.

In a planned execution, SA Water allowed the tank to reach a low level, before pumping the rest into another tank that remains online.

Approximately 50 contractors will work on concrete rehabilitation, a new overflow pipework, new external concrete drains, new roof beams and around 5000 square metres of roof re-sheeting.

No need to worry though, SA Water say the maintenance won’t impact on the water supply to Whyalla.

The works to the enormous tank form part of SA Water’s $89 million investment to upgrade over 100 water storages around South Australia.

The tank is expected to be back in action by September.
