Desal plant to supply more water

THE Gold Coast Desalination Plant at Tugun has increased its output to 66 per cent to ensure a continued supply of high-quality drinking water for south-east Queensland in the wake of the state’s flood disaster.

Queensland Natural Resources Minister Stephen Robertson said pure treated water would be mixed with water from other treatment plants.

“At this time of great uncertainty the desalination plant and the water grid are being used to their full extent to provide safe, sufficient and secure drinking water supplies for south-east Queenslanders,” Mr Robertson said.
