Perth Seawater Desalination Plant 2

Proposal description: 

The Western Australian Water Corporation is proposing to construct the Perth Seawater Desalination Plant 2 (PSDP 2) as part of Perth’s Integrated Water Supply Scheme which aims to provide additional sources of drinking water to supplement the existing metropolitan water supply.

The PSDP2 Proposal will be located within the Kwinana Industrial Area, approximately 38 km south of the Perth Metropolitan Area, on Lot 1864, Riseley Road in Naval Base.

PSDP2 will be developed in two stages (each with a capacity to supply 25 GL) and will be operated independently of the existing PSDP1. The Proposal requires the installation of a seawater intake pipeline and seawater return outlet to enable the discharge of return seawater (brine) to the marine environment.
