The role of the Snowy Advisory Committee is to provide vital community and expert input to the pattern of the release of environmental flows to the Snowy River and Snowy montane rivers, to ensure their ongoing health.

The Snowy is one of the largest snowmelt rivers in Australia. It flows from the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales to the sea at Marlo in Victoria. The Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme diverts water for irrigation and electricity generation to the Murrumbidgee and Murray rivers.

The Snowy Advisory Committee (SAC) is to be made up of at least 6 members representing Aboriginal, local community and environmental interests, alongside NSW and Victorian government representatives.

Appointments are for up to 3 years, beginning in early 2018, with reappointment available.

The closing date for applications is 16 February 2018.
