General information

A little bit about Trimpley

  • Trimpley reservoir was created to supplement the Elan Valley pipeline, which brings wonderful Welsh water all the way to Birmingham to supply our customers.
  • The reservoirs perimeter is 29 acres and it is approximately 3ft deep. This increases to 40ft by the valve tower.
  • Construction on the reservoir started in 1964 and was completed in 1968.
  • The top reservoir provides water to the Elan Valley Aqueduct which in turn supplies water to Birmingham, Mamble, and Tenbury.
