Dan’s latest desal rip off

Melbourne water customers will get even bigger bill increases if Daniel Andrews goes ahead with his latest desal rip off.

Bills more than doubled when Labor first built the desalination plant, and water customers already pay $600 million a year in service payments to Aquasure without getting a drop of water.

By lifting the trigger point to 60 per cent and adding another desal unit, Daniel Andrews looks hell bent on making Melburians pay even more.
