Information

Highest dam wall at 161.5 m of the 16 large dams in the Snowy Scheme. But only the third largest gross capacity of 920 gigalitres as the Tumut River valley, while being long is quite narrow, reducing further storage. For 50 years since completion in 1970, it has had an operating range of 9 m giving an active capacity of 160 GL. This water has a rated head of 150 m above the turbines in Tumut 3 Power Station.
In the future it will also provide pumped storage back to Tantangara Reservoir against a head of nearly 700 m when Snowy 2.0 comes on line in 2024. This same head will provide 2000 MW of power for peak loads and when solar panels and wind turbines are unable to operate.


Summertime - enjoy water skiing and seasonal fishing. Scenic drives to nearby Buddong Falls and Batlow. Just a few minutes drive from the small village of Talbingo on the shores ofJounama Pondage.
