Sydney's new desalination plant switched on ...

Sydney's controversial desalination plant has been switched on and is pumping purified sea water into the city's drinking supply.

NSW Premier Kristina Keneally pushed the button on the $1.9 billion plant, at Kurnell in Sydney's south, this morning.

At capacity, the plant will generate 250 million litres of water a day, providing around 15 per cent of Sydney's water supply.

Ms Keneally said the cost of the plant would mean an extra $2 a week on Sydneysiders' water bills.

The plant was delivered on time and $60 million under budget, she said.
