The groundwater recharge-discharge model, or hydro-equilibrium model, has driven Victorian dryland salinity research for the last 30 years. This paper challenges its application to the Dundas Tableland, south-western Victoria, on historical grounds. In exposing the weak historical foundation of the model for one geographical area so well represented in mainstream investigations, the critique is designed to question the validity of applying the model to other parts of Australia without corresponding historical research. More generally, it is hoped that this contribution from another discipline gives a respectful but significant nudge to the hegemony of physical science in defining and finding solutions for environmental problems.
