The Snowy Hydro water people are releasing the largest amount of water since the building of the Jindabyne Dam into the Snowy River. May be a very good opportunity for some good photos, weather permitting.

Extract: "THE biggest release of water ever seen from Jindabyne Dam has begun, as an extra 84 billion litres of melted snow thunders down the Snowy River over the next three weeks.
The release is designed to scrape mud, weeds and silt from the Snowy's clogged bed. It will build up to a peak on Wednesday when the newly concreted spillway on the face of the dam is fully opened for the first time since the dam was completed in 1967.
The timing of the flow is designed to mimic the spring snow melt, the NSW Office of Water said."
