Information

The concrete gravity Guthega Dam impounds 1830 megalitres in the pondage. This water supplies Guthega power station via a tunnel and pressure pipeline. Completed by a Norwegian company in 1955 the dam is the first of three on the upper Snowy River and was the first of 16 in the Snowy Scheme. Freezes over in winter bringing a halt to generation and will spill in spring when snowmelt combines with heavy rain.
