Summary

Surveyor's Report on WISALTS Soil Conservation System created by RH (Rod) Sawyer.

Comments: (A) Shallow 2 to 3 feet. There is room for another short bank further up slope to cut off the 5 metre vertical fall. Soil type is quite steep in places and a dam may be put in on this bank if enough run off occurs. I have checked a number of banks on this property with the wire to find a lot of leaks. Many of these throughflows are at the 5 to 7 foot depth. Some are crossing the Tie Line Road going down into problem areas. Plastic sheet will be used in the near future on these areas.

This document is part of the WISALTS (Whittington Interceptor Sustainable Agriculture Land Treatment Society Incorporated) Collection.
