Historic Landmark: Goldfields Water Supply

GWS Plaque

The Goldfields Water Supply had the world's longest fresh water pipeline when built, which was the first to be fabricated from steel. It was designed and constructed by the Western Australian Public Works Department from 1895 to 1903 and consisted of Mundaring Weir on the Helena River, eight steam powered pumping stations and a 566 km pipeline to Kalgoorlie.
