Bass Coast residents have been accused of nimby-ism in opposing the Victorian Desalination Plant. But the imminent signing of a contract with one of two powerful multinational water companies, Veolia/Connex and Degremont/Suez, makes us ask, on behalf of all Victorians: What if our state is tied to huge budget blow-outs for the next 30 years? Will we pay for desalinated water we don’t need, as in NSW/Queensland ? Is desalinated water sieved through the bodies of dead sea creatures the best option?
To the Victorian Government we say : Don’t sign a secret contract for which future generations will pay through the nose!
Tanks, pay once…..Desal, pay forever!
I look forward to your reply,
