South Australia Plans New Desal Plant


An $80 million desalination plant is being planned for Port Lincoln, with SA Water already purchasing land at the "preferred" site for the facility. SA Water bought 60 hectares of land at Sleaford Bay, 17km west of Port Lincoln in July. "We haven't guaranteed this as the location, but it is a preferred site and securing the land is important," Environment Minister David Speirs told The Advertiser on Thursday.
