Flooding calls into question gippsland desal siatm 카지노te, as NSW government fails to take its responsibility for response to Queensland flooding
The Gippsland Desalination Project would be commissioned by the state government, but has been subject to delays and cost overruns because the project was to produce drinking water for three hours each day for two years.
A state report into the project, which could result in $200m for the state and $100m for the federal government, recommended replacing the desalination plants with solar and wind power.
The Gippsland Desalination Project had been estimated to produce more than 700MW of electricity, and the NSW Environmental Protection Authority said the cost of retrofitting two of the four plants, which need to replace 90 per cent of the electricity from the plants, would cost $100m.
The Gippsland Desalination Project was expected to contribute to an additional 600MW of electricity from the plants, according to the Environmental Protection Authority.
The report acknowledged concerns raised by the federal minister for water resources in Sydney about the safety of pumping drinking water from the desalination plant into the Pacific Ocean, but stressed the project could produce up to 875MW of electricity over the two-year period.
It added: “While there was considerable concern about the desalination technology, this may be expected given that water is typically removed in a matter of hours, and that the project will continue operations after the water has been exhausted”.
In an update sent to members of the public on Thursday morning, an envir우리카지노계열onmental officer responsible for Gippsland warned that the project could potentially contaminate and desalinate the Pacific Ocean if pumped and discharged untreated.
“Gippsland could potentially suffer from potential contamination and desalination of its water supply and could potentially be exposed to potential impacts including the impact of increased salinity within the Pacific, the need for further study, and the need for more detailed modelling to assess the effects of current and future operations,” said Andrew Smith, chief executive of the Gippsland Water Utility.
“It is not appropriate for the public to rely on information to act as an indicator of the risks presented by this new project, unless they have further information and information are considered to be fully accurate at the time the decision is made.”
The NSW Environment Protection Authority did not respond to queries about블랙 잭 whether it had made a final decision, but it is understood the project is being monitored.
