Planning approval for the Belmont desalination plant has been received. This means we are able to start construction of the plant when needed in response to drought.

A desalination plant for the Lower Hunter was originally identified in the 2014 Lower Hunter Water Plan as a drought response measure.

As one of the few water source options not dependent on rainfall, desalination helps us to continue to support our customers and communities with a safe and reliable water source regardless of changes in weather or climate.

Belmont was selected as the location for the desalination plant after a multi-site analysis
