Barren Box Swamp Project

The Barren Box Swamp (BBS) Project was a wetland project jointly initiated by Murrumbidgee Irrigation Ltd and Water for Rivers.

The development will assist in the return of environmental flows to the Snowy River and the Murray River system and was classified as State Significant development, requiring approval by the NSW Minister of Planning prior to construction.

Very strict environmental controls were required to limit potential impact on Aboriginal cultural heritage, air and ground water quality, and containment of the noxious Alligator Weed.
