The evolution of urban salinity management

Many people have heard of irrigation and dryland salinity. But only a small number associate salinity with built assets like roads, or with urban areas like western Sydney. Over the past 10 years, this group of people has steadily grown. They have also learnt a lot about the 2 way interactions between natural resource issues and engineering design, construction and management decisions. Some have come to realise the potential magnitude of costs resulting from poor urban salinity management and have worked to breakdown the barriers between natural resource and development professions, to overcome a myriad of issues and avoid these costs. This paper will highlight some of the symptoms of urban salinity, describe various processes and actions that can exacerbate these symptoms, while providing a brief history of this evolution of urban salinity management.
