Water Corporation - Perth Desalination Plant

The Perth Seawater Desalination Plant, located at Kwinana, 40 kilometres south of Perth, started supplying water to the Integrated Water Supply Scheme (IWSS) in November 2006. In doing so, it became the first plant in Australia to provide desalinated water for large-scale public consumption.

It is the Water Corporation’s biggest single water source feeding into the IWSS, providing some 17 per cent of Perth’s water needs. On average, the plant produces up to 130 million litres of drinking water per day, or 45 gigalitres per year.
