Desalination Order for 2012 is Zero

They took our Money for the water ahead of time,

Now the plant won’t be ready on time,

And we have officially told them we don’t need any water this coming season.

Media release:  The Hon Peter Walsh MP, Minister for Agriculture and Food Security, Minister for Water

“It would cost an extra $25 million to purchase 50 GL from the plant, while an order of 150 gigalitres would cost $109 million,” Mr Walsh said.
“Given we don’t need the water and we are already contractually obliged to pay for water produced during commissioning, we believe the most responsible course of action is to save this money.”
