Pine Ridge: a catchment in good hands

In the early 1990s, some 195,000 hectares of the Liverpool Plains, NSW, were estimated to be at risk from salinisation. Community concerns about rising saline water tables led to the formation in 1992 of the Liverpool Plains Land Management Committee. As the program entered its first year, seven farming families from the Yarramanbah/Pump Station Creek and adjoining Warrah Creek catchments formed the Pine Ridge Landcare Group. The families, initially concerned about increased flooding and waterlogging in the area, have since worked collectively to protect the productivity of their land.
