Originally the water was pumped some 3000 ft or around 900 metres to the reservoir at the top of the town with no running costs. The reservoir is about 270 feet or about 80 metres above the river. The scheme covered an area from just south of the river along to the old pier. It also included taps along the foreshore, the recreation ground, (village green) and the public hall.
