The Magazine Gap Road No.1 Fresh Water Supply Reservoir (FWSR) was constructed in the early 20th century. It used to have a capacity of 2 123 m3​. Due to ageing .... the service reservoir was decommissioned in 1997. Fresh water supply is currently (=2003) provided by the existing Magazine Gap Road No.2 FWSR and a temporary glass reinforced plastic tank with capacities of 2 282 m​3 and 1 000 m3​ respectively.   ....  We propose to construct a new service reservoir, the Magazine Gap Road No.3 FWSR with a capacity of 4 600 m3​, adjacent to the existing Magazine Gap Road No.2 FWSR to replace the temporary tank.
