The plaque commemorates the commissioning of the Bookpurnong Salt Interception Scheme in September 2006.

Salt interception schemes are large-scale pumping schemes that divert saline groundwater and drainage water before entering rivers. In most cases, a bore and pump system extracts the groundwater and pumps it to a salt management basin some distance from the river.
