Interceptor banks not rejected, says Old

(1982) Interceptor banks not rejected, says Old. The Countryman, 12 November 1982. [Publication] [Special Collections]


The WISALTS interceptor bank system of salt control on farm land had not been rejected by the State Government. The Minister for Agriculture, Mr Old said there was no doubt that the interceptor banks played an important role, but whether it was the complete answer, the Department of Agriculture was investigating. Trials involving the interceptor banks has been monitored for some years. The Commissioner for Soil Conservation and the soils division were working with various groups trying to solve the farmland salt problem. Mr Old was responding in the estimates debate to National Party member M.E. Stephens, who said his party had supported the WISALTS programme for years, but the Government had done little about it.
