To secure Sydney’s water supply during the drought, Sydney Water has today confirmed with the Sydney Desalination Plant that the plant is re-starting operations.
Today total dam storage levels have fallen below 60%, following a record dry spell over 2018. That’s the Metropolitan Plan trigger for re-starting the plant.
The plant has delivered water into Sydney Water’s water network before, from 2010 to 2012, in response to the Millennium drought.
Sydney Desalination Plant’s Chief Executive Officer, Keith Davies, said the plant will help ease the strain on Sydney’s water supply.
