Who Will Pay for Dan’s Pipe Dreams?

Background

The Victorian Government today released ‘Water for Victoria’ a plan for Victoria’s water supply.

Labor’s water plan will see more people paying for Dan Andrew’s desal plant.

Turning on the desal plant and sending water east, north or west means customers somewhere will pay but Labor’s Water Plan doesn’t say who, or how much.

Labor has a shocking record of sending water bills sky-high with past mistakes like the north-south pipeline and a giant desal plant.

Daniel Andrews has already cost Melbourne families $27 million with a desal water order despite the city dams being above 70 pc and still filling.
