This is a regulating storage holding 26.6 GL.It receives variable inflows of up to 250 cumecs from Murray 2 Power Station and natural inflow from the Swampy Plain river. Outflow is controlled by a regulating gate releasing a more uniform flow averaging 30 cumecs over a year, a value which in practice rarely occurs. The annual release is about 1000 GL which flows into the Hume Reservoir.
Instantaneous releases are held below 113 cumecs if possible, as this is the channel capacity of the river and avoids flooding. During the spring snow thaw heavy rain may add to the runoff and up to 500 cumecs has been released, with one of the main spillway gates needing to be opened.
