  3. Emu Swamp Dam

    The proposed Emu Swamp Dam site lies on the Severn River upstream of Fletcher Road, 15 kilometres south from Stanthorpe, Queensland.

    The river only runs for brief periods now, as many dams, weirs and harvest licences upstream have already captured the overland and river flow.
