Water—Molonglo(Question No 1194)

Mr Rattenbury asked the Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, upon notice, on 23 September 2010 (redirected to the Minister for Planning):

(1) Has the Government undertaken any cost benefit analysis of the provision of non-potable water to Molonglo households, including the option of building a third pipeline; if so, who undertook this cost benefit analysis and when.

(2) What different options were modelled in any cost benefit analysis.

(3) What were the key scenarios that were included in any modelling that was undertaken.

(4) Can the Minister provide any cost benefit analysis that has been undertaken.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Yes, the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) managed a jointly funded study (ACTPLA and ACTEW) to prepare a Molonglo Valley Urban Water Management Strategy which included a triple bottom line/ sustainability assessment of all available options for water supplies at Molonglo including third pipeline options.

This was undertaken by an international consulting firm, Kellogg Brown and Root, who are specialists in this field. The study, which was completed in January 2007, included workshops involving a number of government agencies - the Department of Territory and Municipal Services, Department of Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water, the Environment Protection Authority, the Land Development Agency and ACTPLA, as well as ACTEW and ActewAGL.
