Belmont Drought Response Desalination Plant


Hunter Water is seeking planning approval for a drought response desalination plant at Belmont. The plant is our insurance policy if the Lower Hunter reaches critical water storage levels in severe drought conditions. While the likelihood of having to construct the desalination plant is low, Hunter Water needs to seek planning approval now so we are ready to build, should we need to in the future.
