Farmoor reservoir

Farmoor from the air under construction and completed

The Thames Water (TW) operated Farmoor reservoirs were completed in 1976 and now purify water drawn from the River Thames to supply Oxford and Swindon. If the Thames is low, TW can pump water back into the river so that it can be taken out at other facilities further downstream.

We sail on either the smaller Farmoor 1, capacity around 4.5m litres, which was completed in 1967, or more often, we sail on the larger main reservoir, Farmoor 2, capacity around 9.25m litres over 1sq.km at a depth of around 12m (40ft).
