Structural controls for dryland saline seeps

Description

Dryland saline seeps can be controlled using structural or biological controls. Structural controls for discharge areas include surface water management, subsurface water management and relief wells. Generally, structural controls lower water tables and improve accessibility in discharge areas faster than biological controls. However, structural controls are usually more expensive than biological controls and are not always totally effective.
