11055: Addressing Salinity in the Dinninup Catchment
The Dinninup Catchment is an area of prime agricultural land currently facing the threat of salinity.
This project will work with landholders to implement recommendations outlined in the Dinninup Catchment Salinity Action Plan (2008) to manage salt-affected land and in-stream salinity, and mitigate the further spread of salinity.
Investment will be targeted at the northern sub-catchment, which contributes higher levels of salt to the Dinninup Brook and subsequently the Blackwood River.
This project will:
- develop action management plans to address priority degraded areas with participating landholders
- fence and revegetate salt-affected land, particularly in the riparian area
- increase landholder knowledge and ability to monitor and manage salinity
By increasing landholder capacity this project will assist in achieving catchment scale change through integrated land management practices.
