Water Licences

The Snowy Mountains Scheme is operated in accordance with the Snowy Water Licence issued by the NSW Government.

The Water Licence specifies both the operating rules associated with releasing water to the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers, as well as the release and accounting rules associated with environmental releases to the Snowy and montane Rivers.  The requirements of the Water Licence are implemented through an annual operating plan.
