Salt banks stand up to floods

Piggott, M. (1982) Salt banks stand up to floods. Western Farmer and Grazier, 25 February 1982. p. 36 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Tambellup farmers along the Gordon River catchment have spent a fortune on bank construction to control salt encroachment. The experience at Don Forward's property shows that the interceptors worked through the floods, with the salt flats drier than expected after the deluge they received. The lower level interceptors are acting as drains and lowering waterlogging.

This article contains an image of Don Forward with children Tracy and Grant inspecting a dam after the January floods.
