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.
Where an annual under-storey between saltbush rows is possible, the under-storey provides the bulk of the feed for grazing animals and the saltbush improves conditions for annual pasture plants, an
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.
To make sound decisions on managing saline sites, you need to know the source of salt, how salinisation is occurring, the landscape context, and most importantly, the actual salt concentration of t
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.
