Getting the Snowy River flowing again

In the 1990s, more than 99 per cent of the Snowy River’s headwaters had been diverted to the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers for irrigation through the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme.

Working with local activists in East Gippsland, Environment Victoria won a commitment to help the Snowy River flow again in 2000.
