Snowy Hydro does not determine releases from the Snowy Scheme or to irrigators.

Snowy Scheme releases and the other River Murray and Murrumbidgee River catchment inflows are re-regulated by Hume Dam on the River Murray and Blowering Dam on the Tumut River – neither of which are owned or controlled by Snowy Hydro.

Water releases for extractive and environmental uses along the Upper River Murray are managed by the Murray- Darling Basin Authority, principally through releases from Dartmouth and Hume Dams (the Snowy Scheme does not make releases into nor has any control over the operation of Dartmouth Dam).

Water releases for extractive and environmental uses along the Murrumbidgee River are managed by the NSW State Water Corporation, principally through releases from Blowering and Burrinjuck Dams (again, the Snowy Scheme does not have any control over the operation of Burrinjuck Dam).
