Waste Water Treatment Plant
House of Representatives - 4th Session - 10th Republican Parliament
WHEREAS the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has determined that there is to be a Waste Water Treatment plant at the Beetham Water Treatment Estate;
AND WHEREAS WASA has passed the process for the selection of a contractor to the National Gas Company (NGC);
AND WHEREAS this process has resulted in the NGC selecting a contractor whose price is millions of dollars above the nominal low bidder among competent contractors;
BE IT RESOLVED that the House take note of these developments and call upon the Honourable Prime Minister to immediately stop this award and review the overall circumstances to ensure that the public interest is protected and state resources are not stolen or wasted in the arrangements between WASA and NGC with respect to this water supply project.
