Helping to secure Victoria’s water supply
Following years of drought and low reserves, the Victorian Government wanted to find a rainfall-independent source of fresh water near the state capital, Melbourne. The long-term solution? The Victorian Desalination Project—the largest desalination plant in Australia.
We were appointed as the independent reviewer and environmental auditor on the project—a second set of eyes and trusted partner that would ensure the best possible outcomes for the project. We provided a full range of technical and advisory services to Aquasure and the Department of Sustainability and Environment. These services included regular meetings with the Victorian Government, analysis of project documents, and a report outlining our findings and suggestions.
With this desalination plant, the Victorian Government will be able to secure their water supply against the effects of climate change, population growth, and drought. The desalination plant can provide up to 150 billion litres (39.6 billion gallons) of water per year regardless of rainfall, which is more than a third of Melbourne’s yearly needs.
