Relief wells can provide water resources and help reduce the severity and extent of waterlogging and salinity caused by leaky artesian systems.
Plant tolerance of salinity in the tables below are a guide only.
Groundwater pumping can lower local watertables and reduce the spread of local salinity.
Siphons are a way of passively moving water from areas of higher hydraulic head to areas of lower hydraulic head, through a pipe.
An evaporation basin is a natural salt lake or engineered earth structure designed to store and evaporate saline water.
Dryland salinity (salinity on non-irrigated land) is one of the greatest environmental threats facing Western Australia's agricultural land, water, biodiversity and infrastructure.
Open groundwater drains are excavated channels with sloping floors and sides, designed to intercept and drain surface (usually fresh) and groundwater (usually saline in Western Australia) from agri
Managing subsurface water can help to lower watertables and alleviate problems with waterlogging, rising salinity, and infrastructure damage.
Pumping of groundwater and disposal of saline effluent (reject water) from desalination is covered by regulations requiring owners or occupiers to notify the Commissioner of Soil and Land Conservat
This page lists species commonly found on or near saline land in southern Western Australia. These species can be used as indicators of the level of salinity and waterlogging on the site.
