What is involved in this project?

  1. During periods of high demand on the scheme there is an insufficient supply and pressure to supply Outrath Reservoir. At present, there is only 7 hours of storage at Outrath.
  2. The pump station at Outrath is located at too high an elevation. This project will move the pumps to a more suitable location and provide additional storage in the event of an outage.
