Water Tanks – Clare Valley
Clare Valley is a valley located in South Australia about 100 kilometres north of the Adelaide city centre. It is located both within the South Australian Government region of Yorke and Mid North and the local government area of District Council of Clare and Gilbert Valleys. The main towns along the Horrocks Highway are (from north to south) – Clare, Penworthham, Sevenhill, Watervale and Auburn. It is notable for being the location of the wine region of the same name – the Clare Valley wine region.
Despite the thriving Wine Industry, the Clare Valley has a very real water supply constraint that is in part caused by limited rainfall and a decrease in groundwater quality due to a rise in salinity in the water table. In recent times SA Water and the Clare Region Winegrape Growers Association have arranged for irrigation water to be diverted via pipeline from the Murray River during the summer peak period, to provide a reliable supply for the Viticulture Industry.
As water is no longer the freely available commodity that it has been in the past, the community will need to have a stronger focus on harvesting and storing high-quality water in order to meet demand in the future for rural household and commercial supply.
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.
