Historical information

The amount of rain and snow during the year and over the years was recorded regularly. This was done at several sites and was important for the building of the Kiewa Hydro Electric Scheme which involved dams, power stations and racelines.


The KHES depended on accurate and detailed measurements of rain and snow on the Bogong High Plains in order to plan and construct high functioning infrastructure.
