The Sedgefield desalination plant in Knysna hasn’t been used since its inception in 2009. The Municipality claims that the cost to the Public for its water would be too high. However, the upkeep costs taxpayers millions of rands annually. Early 2017, I had an email conversation with Tom Callaghan, the Divisional Director of GTEK (Pty) Ltd Water, the company that had installed the plant.
