Here are a few examples of water supply options that could supply enough water to more than cover the quantity proposed from the Wonthaggi desalination option:

Have a look at the cost comparisons, the ongoing cost of water, and in particular the carbon emissions from each of these options.  Click on the links to see a new page with the details:

  -  options including non drinkable recycling (full cost of each option)

  -  options as above but excluding the cost of the government’s commitment to upgrade the Eastern Treatment Plant

  -  as above but including drinking purified recycled water from the Eastern Treatment Plant

You may have seen the large notice on pages 28-29 of this week’s Sentinel Times with information about the Phillip Island Nature Park Open Day on 27 March.

Many interesting activities have been organised. Of particular interest to Watershed members are the Shearwaters at Sunset event at 6.30pm and the two sessions about Little Penguins at Sea (11am and 4pm). The shearwaters will shortly be departing on their annual migration and the lights and structures of the desalination plant are particularly hazardous for young birds.

It should also be interesting to find out about where penguins are feeding in relation to the desal.

Dear Watershed Supporters

As you all well know, we have endured during these past four years a pig-headed cover-up Government that would not consult, explain, listen, engage, and thankfully they are now gone. We have been vindicated.

Here’s hoping the new Government brings a fresh approach to water, a sustainable water future.

There are published signs of change.

Premier Ted Bailleu on Stateline before the election, and the wider media afterward, has undertaken to release the full desal contract if legally allowed, and to examine if the project can be scaled back which would bring cost savings, environmental savings, and an opportunity for other water options to be advanced in the future.

I welcome too the appointment of Peter Walsh as the Minister in charge of water Statewide, a positive step away from factionalised city/country water policy and projects.

Thankyou to everyone who has helped bring this change about, and we look forward to a new era of politics with prospect of new water beginnings.

best wishes everyone for a merry Christmas, a happy New Year, and the end of a long drought in respect both of rainfall and inept Government.

Stephen Cannon
