DPI Water has issued a ‘rising river alert’ for the Snowy River between Jindabyne Dam and Dalgety for tomorrow.

The river will rise due to the first high-flow event in a series of five planned environmental releases.

The highest flow rate will occur at Jindabyne Dam from 7am to 3pm tomorrow and will be equivalent to 4,552 megalitres per day for the eight hour period.

Downstream landholders are being encouraged to make appropriate plans, including moving stock or pumps and infrastructure to higher ground.

This year’s high-flow events will be given culturally significant names by Aboriginal elders, reflecting their respective community’s connection with the rivers of the Snowy Mountains.
