Eden Tank is complete - ready for the next fire

30th March 2016 | Mike Allen

Eden Tank sits on the crest of the hill between Roseworthy and Shea Oak Log. It has multiple functions in transfering water and controlling multiple pumps that utilise the mainline. But although it was not in the Project Plan, it was readily given another function - of providing fire water. The tank is at the downwind edge of where the Pinery bushfires burned 86,000 hectares on 25/11/2015 next to an old tree which bears the scars of a much earlier fire. Most of our pipes had been buried at that stage, but some uninstalled pipes were burned in the fire's destructive path.
