Information

The combined flows of the Burrungubugge and Gungarlin aqueducts empty into a surface de-aeration tank. Each aqueduct pipeline drains over a vee notch meter with the gauge level correlated to a flow rate in cumecs and logged by equipment in the recorder house.The water becomes aerated so is diverted to the NW end of the tank where it surges 6 m to the surface losing its air. It then flows across the top of the tank to the SE end where the trashrack traps any large logs.
A single 1.83 m diameter siphon then transfers the water 135 m below ground level into the Eucumbene - Snowy tunnel. The water may flow NE into Lake Eucumbene for storage or SW to Island Bend to join the Snowy- Geehi tunnel which feeds Geehi Reservoir and the Murray 1 Power Station.
Access to the intake tank is by foot or pushbike from a locked gate about 400 m south. A further 1.3 km stroll through some interesting granite country scenery will reach the Gungarlin Diversion Weir.
