Closure of Paringa Paddock area within Murray River National Park
The Department for Environment and Water (DEW) is restoring Paringa Paddock's connection to the main river channel by installing or replacing culverts to allow water to flow into and through the wetland, and installing a regulator to manage when and for how long water is held in the wetland. DEW is dredging several creeks and removing a creek crossing to improve water flow. The aim is to help the wetlands return to a more natural state and build resilience towards changes in climate and the impact of droughts. Please see the fact sheet for more information.
Work is due to commence November 2018 and should be completed by early to mid 2019. During this time public access will be restricted for safety reasons.
