Water Tanks – Bordertown
Bordertown is a small South Australian town near the Victorian border. It’s where the Dukes Highway and the railway line, the two main routes between Adelaide and Melbourne, cross Tatiara Creek.
Bordertown has a population of 2,792 people and has a relatively stable population, although it has seen an influx of new residents move to the area to provide a workforce for the local JBS Meatworks Abattoir, which employs over 470 people.
The district’s economy is largely based on agriculture, with cereal crops and livestock farming and in more recent years broad acre viticulture crops have begun to dominate the landscape. This is in part due to the availability of vast reserves of high-quality groundwater in the region.
While this resource is extensive, it is also a finite resource and careful management will need to be undertaken to ensure the sustainability of this asset. Research such as the recently completed SA Water 6-year water balance study into the movement of water through the Poocher Swamp catchment has provided a valuable insight into this local resource.
Rainwater is also a valuable source of high-quality water that can be used for drinking and commercial operations. It is important to invest in water harvesting and storage to ensure that you are able to sustain supply security in years of lower than average rainfall.
If you would like to increase your water storage capacity for your business or provide additional domestic supply for your home, Heritage Water Tanks can offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs.
