The rockfill wall of Jounama dam forms a pondage with a gross capacity of 45.5 GL. This allows pumping of up to 28 GL by Tumut 3 Power Station, usually at off-peak times and cost rates from 1 to 5 am. The same water is used to generate peak demand power around 8 am or 6 pm. Over a year more than 1000 GL passes from Jounama into Blowering via a small hydro station producing 14.4 MW or over the spillway with its three combined radial gates.
