Gold Coast delsal plant - Government Failure

A recent trip to the Gold Coast approximately 80 kilometres (50 miles) south east of Brisbane in Queensland, has netted information in this post.

It is a well known fact to the local population, but a lesser known to the rest of Australians, that the Australian government has produced a failed desalination plant on the Gold Coast.

The government has failed in the risk analisys of the project, and consequently the plant is failing to produce water as it was designed to do.

What happens usually during these tenders is that the cronies in government and business give each other work, at the expense of public funds.

The project then goes 'over budget' which in reality is a failure of the (false) 'quotation' / business plan.

Currently the Australian Tax payers are paying $35,000 per day to keep the desalination plant operational which does not produce ANY water.

The same fate will occur to the desalination plant in Victoria, which the government has announced is already at a project blow out to the taxpayers.

Another fraud brought to you by the government at the expense of the taxpayer.
