Hydrogeological landscapes (HGL) have been developed to characterise and manage the quality and distribution of water on the surface and in the shallow sub-surface of the landscape. The HGL unit descriptions provide a framework which spatially defines salinity management areas and recommends how best to manage and prioritise these landscapes.

In this project undertaken for the Murray CMA, 33 different HGLs have been defined, each with unique salinity situations (salinity management areas) which require tailored management solutions involving specific management actions.
