It was built in 1894–96 as part of the early Onkaparinga Water Scheme, the weir was designed to pool water from the Mount Bold Reservoir, on the Onkaparinga, which is often boosted with water from the River Murray. From the weir water is directed onwards to Happy Valley Reservoir in the Field River catchment through pipeline. The water is used to supply the majority of the Adelaide region's water needs.
