Anna Bligh keeps location of SEQ's second desalination plant secret ...

The Bligh Government is sitting on a high-level report identifying the location of the second-wave of desalination plants planned for Queensland.

The report, completed months ago, reveals which of two environmentally sensitive sites at Bribie Island or Marcoola on the Sunshine Coast will host a proposed new desalination plant.

A site at bayside Lytton in Brisbane and either the Bribie or Marcoola options – both of which involve building in national parks – were identified last February as "priority" locations.

However, despite promising a final decision on sites by mid-year, the Government now says it will not release the report until a decision is made on the Traveston Dam in the Mary Valley.
