About No 3
Jointly vested in the National Trust and the Shire of Cunderdin, No 3 Pump Station, is a significant heritage property on the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail. No 3 Pump Station is one of six remaining steam pump station buildings, constructed in 1901 and commencing operations in 1903, as part of the National Heritage listed Goldfields Water Supply Scheme.
The Goldfields Water Supply Scheme, constructed under the direction of CY O’Connor, is an incredible engineering feat, pumping water 560 kilometers from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. Conserving No 3 Pump Station is critical in ensuring the stories of the place continue to be told for years to come.
No 3 Pump Station underwent much needed conservation works in 2020, thanks to a Department of Industry Science Energy and Resources’ Australian Heritage Grant scheme and funding from the Shire.
Planned conservation works secured the building’s fabric, ensuring it is structurally sound and makes it safe for visitors. This involved the conservation of the timbers and supporting beams in the engine room floor.
