Water Corporation refers desalination options for environmental approvals

11 months ago

Following more than 18 months of feasibility investigations, supported by stakeholder and community engagement, the Water Corporation has referred two desalination plant proposals to the Federal Department of Environment and Energy (EPBC Act) and the Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority for assessment.

The proposals: Alkimos Seawater Desalination Plant and Perth Seawater Desalination Plant 2 (in Kwinana), are part of long term planning to secure Perth’s water supply, with current planning indicating a new water source may be needed for Perth within the next 5-10 years.
