Works are under way on the 28m-high concrete water storage tank in Millicent, as part of SA Water’s ongoing state-wide network maintenance program.
The $300,000 project will see the tank’s walls, roof and internal and external pipework refurbished, helping secure reliable water services for local customers.
At this stage, the work is expected to be completed in early June.
There will be no interruption to the SA Water customers’ water supply during the project.
“Given the light footprint of their antenna equipment, we have often allowed telecommunications providers to affix their equipment to our tall water storage tanks, to support telecommunications network coverage,” an SA Water spokesman said.
“For the safety of our crews undertaking work on Millicent’s water storage tank, Telstra have temporarily isolated their equipment housed on the tank and installed a temporary tower in nearby Railway Terrace to ensure continued services for their customers.”
