About this site: No 8 Pump Station was the last of the steam stations of the Goldfields Water Supply Scheme to close. The final shut down came in 1970 bringing an end to almost 70 years of wood fired boilers powering the mighty pumps which delivered water almost 560 kms from Mundaring to Kalgoorlie. The pump station is the most intact and is available for inspection by contacting the caretaker.
