1 Feb 2018
In 1898, construction began on a 565 km steel pipeline from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. It was the brainchild of engineer CY O'Connor, and was created to supply drinking water to the town after the gold rush.
It is now known as the Goldfields and Agricultural Water Supply Scheme and consists of more than 9,599km of water mains and supplies over 100, 000 people.
