Dear Sir/Madam,

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,
