One problem after another

Newspaper article by Geraldine Capp.

Presents a case study of the Muir property at Unicup to explain the complex challenges of draining groundwater. Several measures had to be designed to prevent drainage systems overflowing, causing further waterlogging and salinity concentration en route to the Tone River. This article explains why tree planting alone is not sufficient to solve salinity problems and may increase salinity in certain circumstances.

This article contains two photograph of Nick Cox, a Department of Agriculture conservation officer, surveying small lakes on the Muir property. One of these photographs is credited to John Evans.
