Information

Island Bend Dam impounds the waters of the Snowy River below Guthega Power Station. It's intake shaft connects to the junction of 2 tunnels. Firstly, water can be diverted into Lake Eucumbene for storage via the two way Eucumbene-Snowy tunnel. Returning to the junction at Island Bend the water flows secondly through the Snowy-Geehi tunnel which is joined at its start by a third tunnel from Jindabyne Pumping Station. The flow is one way to Geehi Reservoir to then supply Murray 1 and 2 Power Stations.
The pondage can be covered in ice in July but provides a refreshing swim in January.
