Construction of Hill Dam is underway

22th March 2016 | Bill Harding

Work is well-underway at Hill Dam. Exact Contracting were awarded the contract 23/02/2016 and within a week had a procession of floats to bring the 190 tonne excavator and 777 dump trucks to site for assembly. They are wasting no time moving over a hundred thousands tonnes of soil to build a dam on the crest of the hill on Gomersal Road, in the middle of a vineyard which hasn't been completed due to lack of water. Adelaide oval can fit comfortably inside this huge dam which will hold 680 ML and supply water for miles around using gravity.
