April Meeting – The Cost of Water – David Murphy – Meeting Report

David gave an interesting and informative view on the cost drivers of potable water teatment plants to more than 15 members. (The refreshments were of an unusually high, but hopefully maintainable , quality). It was a very topical presentation in light of the water restrictions under which most of Australia is suffering. Among the points made, David indicated that there is an unprecedented demand around Australia for water infrastructure projects and that the cost estimates for these works were under as much pressure as projects in the resources sector.
