Happy Valley Reservoir construction, State Library of South Australia.

The Happy Valley Reservoir has a history of controversy. One of the earliest large infrastructure projects, it was built at a time when the state was staving-off bankruptcy but desperately needed water for a growing population. The compulsory purchase of the site in Happy Valley would come at a cost. Come on a tour of the Happy Valley Reservoir and explore its inception and construction.
