The Snowy River high flow water releases are set to begin in August, with the department of Primary Industries Water warning land owners who are down stream to make plans.
The high-flow water releases are set to begin August 12th, with the first day set to release over 3000 mega-litres over an eight hour period.
The flows are designed to mimic the natural flow characteristics seen in Snowy Mountain rivers, with the aim of improving the long-term health of the iconic Snowy River .
DPI Water Director Surface Water Management Paul Simpson said Lake Jindabyne will not appear to change, but people need to be careful downstream near rivers.
"The flows are going to be higher than normal, so residents should take extra care when the releases are on," said Mr Simpson.
