WISALTS Field Day

(2006) WISALTS Field Day. Blackwood News, November 2006. p. 4 [Document] [Special Collections]

Summary

A WISALTS field day held in mid-October at a property in the Kojonup area. The field day began with an introduction to WISALTS, why the group formed and what the system intended to do. The participants were taken on a tour of the property and taken through the practical aspects of the WISALTS system. This involved how to identify a potential salinity issue by reading landscape signals to locate 'barriers' to water movement and the development of 'static zones'. The construction of the WISALTS interceptor banks, designed to intercept subsurface and surface water for retention in the landscape, was then demonstrated.

This article contains two images: a completed WISALTS interceptor bank; and Gavin Drew standing in a channel.
