Rising river alert Snowy River below Jindabyne Dam

Rising river alert Snowy River below Jindabyne Dam
29 August 2014 - NSW Office of Water

(Djuran – Running water)
The NSW Office of Water today issued a ‘rising river alert’ for the Snowy River between Jindabyne Dam and Dalgety in southern NSW for Friday 5 September 2014.
The river will rise due to the first high-flow event in a series of five planned environmental releases from Jindabyne Dam to the Snowy River during spring 2014.
All five high-flow events in the Snowy River during spring 2014 have been named by the five regional aboriginal communities - Bidwell-Maap, Wongalu, Southern Monero-Yuin-Bolga, Maneroo-Ngarigo and Wiradjuri - who recognise the link between these high flows and the health of the Snowy River.
This first high-flow event for 2014 has been officially named ‘Djuran’ which means running water, in recognition of the Bidwell–Maap traditional people, who have an enduring and strong connection to the Snowy River.
The Bidwell–Maap people live in the lower Snowy River and high flow events are linked to their traditional belief system.
Djuran was a central part of the Bidwell–Maap belief system and culture and describes the creation of the Snowy River.
The running water from the Snowy River was recognised as an important function to maintain and rejuvenate the plants and animals which in turn provided the essential needs for the Bidwell–Maap traditional people.
The highest flow rate will occur at Jindabyne Dam from 8am to 4pm on Friday 5 September 2014 and will be equivalent to 2,777 megalitres per day for the eight hour period.

For the remainder of Friday 5 September 2014, the flow rate will be equivalent to 1,745 megalitres per day. The flow rate will drop back to 1,157 megalitres per day on Saturday 6 September 2014.
The environmental changes from this release are expected to be greatest between the dam wall to the junction with the Delegate River. However, the pulse will be noticeable down to the estuary in Victoria.
It is expected to see the river water level at Dalgety rise to 1.31 m. This is one of four secondary high flow events for 2014, with water released from the cone valves at Jindabyne Dam.

Water released at Jindabyne will take about six hours to reach Dalgety Weir at this flow rate. Landholders downstream of the Jindabyne Dam are advised to take all necessary precautions with stock, fencing and property.
