WISALTS column

(1987) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 22 January 1987. p. 7 [Publication] [Special Collections]


"Western Australia is one of the driest states in the most arid of the earth's inhabited continents". So says G.J. Syme, principal research scientist in the Division of Groundwater Research of CSIRO in the introduction to "Water Conservation Through Good Design", a book which was recently published by the Western Australia Water Resources Council. Mr Syme goes on to discuss urban water use, its financial, social and environmental costs, savings which can be effected, and points out that one important barrier to water conservation in the past has been lack of readily available simple information. The book is aimed mainly at architects, planners, engineers, landscape architects and land managers. However, there are sections of the book that provide a great deal of useful information which would assist in planning the farmhouse and shed surrounds to create pleasant environments with minimum care and water use.
