Surveyor's Report on WISALTS Soil Conservation System created by JD (Jim) McGregor.

Comments: Mainly concerned with the fall necessary to conduct the water from the boundary on the south side. At A and B on the south side I have made these legs level to steady the flow. I have introduced the lower grade line 2 into the line on the north boundary at a point where the fall is a bit less (13 centimetres in 30 metres) and have put the step in at C where there is a fairly steep fall. The line levels out at 2 points further east which should cope with the situation there. The clay is fairly uniform depth 6 feet to 12 feet and its white gum, yate country. A large proportion of the water does find its way down the firebreak at the moment without too drastic results (so far).
