Environmental Planning Instrument - Salinity

This spatial dataset identifies land where development implications exist due to the presence of salinity, to ensure the effects of development are minimised and mitigated, as designated by a NSW environmental planning instrument. Salinity is the accumulation of salt in land and water to a level that damages the natural and built environment. Salinity usually occurs with other natural resource problems such as decreasing soil and water quality, erosion and loss of native vegetation
