Reducing the cost of South Australia of achieving agreed salinity targets in the River Murray

Author

Abstract

Past irrigation development has lead to rising salt loads in the River Murray and its floodplains, and reduced river flows. Even in the absence of any further development, river and floodplain salt loading as the result of this irrigation is anticipated to grow over the decades. Any new development will bring additional salinity loads and further reduced River flows.
