Water. It’s the most precious resource on earth. As the largest manager of water in Australia, we know first hand just how vital it is.
Hydro Tasmania has a responsibility for 53 of Tasmania’s major lakes and at least 1200 km of natural creeks and rivers are influenced by our hydropower operations in some way.
That’s why we’re fully committed to the sustainable use of this shared resource.
It’s a natural balance
In practice, this means actively looking after our waterways, as well as maintaining a workable balance between electricity generation and other needs, including:
- town water supply
- recreational use
- in-stream biota
- aquatic habitat
That way, people can enjoy the beauty of our lakes and rivers today and for many years to come.
