Here we can share a report prepared for QMDC that reveals that parts of the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin are at substantial risk to salinity.
The report - 'Salinity Risk Assessment for the Queensland Murray-Darling Region' - outlines the areas at high risk from salinity and shows there are considerable areas where water is effectively half seawater and less than 10 metres below the surface.
In addition to this threat, some of these levels have been rising up to half a metre a year, even during times of drought.
Read the report here. (Note this file is a 4.5mb pdf file).
The full report contains a large number of fact sheets, providing information on specific locations.
