   Soil erosion is not a problem for special consideration on Keyline-planned properties, because soil is improved and all run-off rainfall is conserved for economical use. Gullies which were eroding badly have had their destructive water supply directed to farm irrigation dams, where it is utilised for flow irrigation.
