Water infrastructure at Toorale National Park is likely to be upgraded and aged earthen embankments modified in an effort to increase flow down to the Darling River.

The NSW Office of Environment & Heritage is seeking feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors for Phase One of the Toorale Water Infrastructure Project, which will begin at the end of the year if the changes are approved.

Phase One of the project involves removal of an embankment known as Peebles Dam.
