evening/morning all, i see the white stuff is still around, we are now in autum yet still getting days of 35c, pain really, autum is the best time in melbourne usually with a steady 25c in the day, still cant complain we had two nights of rain, so gardens got a good soak. We had a few dry years - melb was down to just 6 mths water supply a while ago - so the labour party built a desal plant, it was almost finished when we had heaps of rain, so our dams are i guess 3/4 full - the conservaties have seized on this, a waste of money building the plant - the flip side was do nothing and if the rain had not came they would have been slugged for not doing anything - a real dammed if you do - dammed if you dont (pardon the pun)

Something I've always wondered, is salt a by product of a desalinisation plant?

dont know but if it is - they dont keep it, as the "waste" is pumped back into the sea, which the local say is so strong it kills the fish - i dont know if its true, government says its not, but u know what they are like

phil i had a quick look before i go off to bed
the delsal plan produces 150 billion litres of fresh water from 280 billion litrs of sea water, and pumps back to sea 280 billion ltrs of saline - the outfall is 1.2 miles from shore. the plant requires 90 - 120 MW of power to run it, so it has a wind farm to assist to try and make it carbon neutral.

all i can tell you is it is in standby mode, due to the floods we had last year and the dams being over 65% for the first time i think in the last 20 years

good nite all
hope the easter bunny comes to visit you - I had my black magic shipped out from the UK so im ok

Evening everyone, I must say I am having a nice relax at the moment. Erdoglad and I had a busy day from hell.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.
