The first in a series of submissions presented to a State Select Committee Inquiry into salinity, that will be published in The Countryman over a period of weeks. The committee will look at the magnitude of the water quality problem, the physical, legislative and administrative actions needed to control salinity and incentives needed to encourage the private sector to work toward a greater salinity control and eradication. Salinity experts were invited by the committee to prepare discussion papers for publication in order to generate public comment and for the media. The Water Authority of Western Australia's submission to the State inquiry into salinity and its effects, notes that integrated management of land and water resources to protect water quality is one of the most important and difficult tasks facing the Western Australian community.
