Salty rivers seen as environment risk

(1976) Salty rivers seen as environment risk. 27 September 1976. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article discusses the Premier, Sir Charles Court stating that the salinity of rivers would be one of the biggest environmental problems in Western Australia.
Uncontrolled clearing in earlier days has lead to increasing salinity, prompting State Government departments, the CSIRO and other organisations to concentrate on research for a remedy.
Sir Charles Court was speaking at the Committee for the Understanding of the Environment centre at the Royal Show.
Two of the most important environmental jobs for Western Australia were to ensure adequate future supplies of good water and to put aside enough land for recreation for future generations and for preserving native animals and plants, Sir Charles said.
