Crai Reservoir – August 2016

We meet at the club on Tuesday 16th August and leave for Crai Reservoir at 6.30pm

Crai Reservoir


Crai Reservoir is a storage reservoir located in the Brecon Beacons National Park for the water supply to the city of Swansea and was built between 1898 and 1906 by Swansea Corporation. The reservoir now supplies water to the towns in the valley of the River Tawe and north Swansea. The location of the reservoir was chosen as it was upstream of the heavily industrialised parts of the Tawe valley and in an area of high rainfall with as large an upstream catchment as possible.
