Expert explains interceptor bank system

Negus, T.R. (1978) Expert explains interceptor bank system. The Countryman, 22 June 1978. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Response from T.R. Negus, officer-in-charge, Department of Agriculture, Narrogin to G.F. Walder in his published letter, agrees with the Department of Agriculture's experimental findings at East Pingelly.
G.F. Walder says that seepage interceptors built with a road grader are ineffective for the purpose of controlling and reclaiming saltland.
Seepage drains are basically contour drains cut deep enough to ensure that the channel bottom is excavated well into the subsoil clay.
T.R. Negus explains that the Department's graded interceptors have worked efficiently during the seven years of the trial.
