Concrete gravity dam on upper Murrumbidgee River completed in 1960 as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme. An ungated overfall spillway descends 36 m down the face of the dam into the stilling basin. Water is diverted into a 3 metre diameter 16.6 km long tunnel emptying into Lake Eucumbene at Providence Portal. Water returns to the lower Murrumbidgee via 4 power stations on the Tumut River.
Trout fishing and camping in the cool alpine summer. Access to dam all year subject to snowfalls. Beyond dam the road to Currango Homestead is closed June to Oct long weekends.
