Summary

Article remembers Laurie Adamson, the "Mr. Wire" of the Whittington Interceptor Sustainable Agriculture Land Treatment Society, who passed away recently.
Laurie was the inaugural Society secretary when it began in 1978 to promote the use of the Whittington Interceptor Bank System to alleviate increasing waterlogging and salinity in agricultural areas.
Laurie contributed much to the development of the system and his skill with the divining wire in ascertaining what lay beneath the ground.
In 1989, Laurie became a Society life member.
Laurie was a successful farmer in the Dangin area and was unstinting in his help to others.
