Groundwater and salinity management

Elevated ground-waters and salinity are frequently an expression of disruption of local or landscape scale water balance.  Strategic establishment of perennial vegetation in the landscape can draw-down water-tables in a predictable manner, allowing design of natural systems that can rehabilitate degraded lands, and protect agricultural lands, natural ecosystems, remnant native vegetation and infrastructure.  Verterra is a specialist in salinity management and can provide services in:

  • Catchment modelling
  • Groundwater flow modelling
  • Groundwater impact modelling
  • Salt tolerant species breeding and selection
  • Soil amelioration and management
  • Infrastructure protection
  • Crop and natural resource protection
