GAP Water for Goodwood Oval
Water should soon flow through the new network of purple pipes. The water will be used to water Goodwood Oval, Forestville Reserve, Orphanage Park and Unley Oval at this time. It is hoped that the first water will be available before Xmas. Council is able to use the water and pay a much lower rate for the water than it would have to pay for mains water. As well Council is not restricted to the amount of water that it can use. The water is coming through the Glenelg Adelaide Pipeline. The water originates as sewage and is treated and purified at Glenelg. While it is suitable for use on parks the water is not potable. This website has a little more detail, but does not include the Unley network. This network links in near Goodwood Rd and George St.
