TURNING ON DESALINATION PLANT WILL COST US DEARLY
Water bills for Yarra Valley families are going up again because Daniel Andrews has made a politically motivated decision to switch on the desalination plant.
Daniel Andrews’ games come at a time when families are already struggling with cost of living pressures.
Melbourne’s water storages are two-thirds full and we did not need any water restrictions over summer. Yet Daniel Andrews rushed off and ordered 50 billion litres of expensive desalinated water on April 1.
Water white elephants like the desal plant and the north-south pipeline are the reason that average household water bill doubled under the last Labor State Government.
And now the desal plant is going to cost Melbourne families $637 million this year – just because Daniel Andrews wants to justify Labor’s previous mistake.
Daniel Andrews is putting politics ahead of people, and our water bills are going up again because of it.
