WISALTS moves to help local communities

Wilson, K. (1990) WISALTS moves to help local communities. Elders Weekly, 20 September 1990. pp. 71-72 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Ken Wilson.

WISALTS consultants have begun using their knowledge of water movement to improve the quality of the ground in their local communities. The expertise has been used to tackle problems such as road washaways through to improving the quality of the lawn at a local bowls club. WISALTS view these achievements as proof their methods are working and have value for the whole community, not just the farmers they primarily work with.

The article contains four photographs: Bob and Luke Hetherington surveying salt scald at a Quairading farm; WISALTS consultant Jim Sorgiovanni using a divining rod; Laurie Adamson explaining the project at the bowls club; a WISALTS field day and WISALTS president Pam McGregor with incoming president, Kevin Harrison.
