    SYDNEY WATER SEWERAGE PROGRAM
Page: 7676


    The Hon. PATRICIA FORSYTHE: My question is to the Minister for Community Services, representing the Minister for Energy. Is it a fact that Sydney Water's $2 billion Sewer Fix Program will not achieve the targets Sydney Water originally set because money has been spent providing six-monthly mechanical and electrical maintenance to the new equipment despite its still being under contractor warranty? Is this because Sydney Water failed to update its maintenance scheduling system? Will the Minister order an immediate investigation into the mismanagement of yet another project at Sydney Water?

    The Hon. CARMEL TEBBUTT: That is not a question that I can respond to but I will refer it to Minister Yeadon and undertake to get a response as soon as possible.
