Contour Channel and Pipe Line Basin Entry

Contour channel and Pipeline Entry Basin( 1935-1937)Lot 50 Canning Mills Rd, Kelmscott.

The Contour Channel carried water from Canning Dam to the metropolitan area entirely by gravity without any pumps and was operational for nearly 40 years until 1979 when it was made redundant. Building it during the Great Depression was back-breaking work but provided work for 250 men and their needy families.
