Rex Jory: Here’s why Adelaide really does

need desal plant

Media Mike’s white elephant. We’ll be paying for it for decades.

DUANE Well it’s done. Get over it. Can’t make it smaller

now, can you?

MARIUS At a moment’s notice in hard times ahead, the eastern states will shut down the River Murray

to protect their own investment­s. No water will flow over the border, and South Australia will rely on the desal plant for basic water. Adelaide is the last on the minds of those in the eastern

states.

JASON Does it matter if it was too big? Should be more of a worry it is there and

not being used.

MANDY Wait until El Niño and upstream water piracy has caused the Murray to empty again. Then

we’ll be glad of it.
