WISALTS struts its stuff

(1989) WISALTS struts its stuff. Elders Weekly, 14 September 1989. p. 98 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Under the instruction of Harry Whittington, the WISALTS Interceptor Bank System and principles were used to protect Gingin Shire roads from flood damage and to resurrect the salt affected Beermullah Lake. The lake had degraded to the point it represented a serious threat to people and animals. In recent years, the algae had grown so much that cattle were dying of botulism after drinking from it. The lake was rendered safe for humans and animals through Mr Whittington's efforts combined with the WISALTS water control measures implemented by farmers in the area around the lake.
