Water of the Snowy Scheme

Overview

Learning area: science, HASS
Topics: water, electricity, geography

Discover how the rain that falls in the mountains combined with the snow melt is collected, filling up our dams that are used to store the water.  The stored water is then used to generate electricity through our Power Stations and released into the Murray River, the Murrumbidgee River and the Snowy River for irrigation.
