The Western Australian government has announced essential infrastructure has been completed to help increased demand for water in the Great Southern town of Denmark.


The works included a new 15 million litre water storage tank, 1.7 kilometres of associated pipeline infrastructure and three pump stations.


Water Corporation began construction works in January 2010 and the project was recently completed within the $20.8million budget.

Water Minister Bill Marmion said the new water tank had three times the capacity of the existing Horsley Road reservoir, and the combined storage would  allow the Water Corporation to better manage the town’s water demands during peak summer periods.

Mr Marmion thanked local residents for their input into the project and their patience during construction works.
