Snowy Advisory Committee

The Snowy Advisory Committee (SAC) is established by the NSW Government under the Snowy Hydro Corporatisation Amendment (Snowy Advisory Committee) Act 2014 (NSW).  The role of the committee is to provide vital community and expert input to the design on the timing and pattern of the release of environmental flows to the Snowy River and Snowy montane rivers, to ensure their ongoing health.

The SAC will consist of at least six members: at least three members appointed by the Minister for Regional Water and three members nominated by the Victorian Government. It will include at least:

  • two community representatives
  • one environmental interest representative
  • one Aboriginal community representative
  • one representative from each of the NSW and Victorian governments.

Appointments will be for up to three years, commencing early 2018, with reappointments available. Members will be paid remuneration and allowances set in accordance with the Public Service Commissioner’s Classification Remuneration Framework for NSW Government Boards and Committees

More detail on the role of SAC members and the Independent Chair are contained in the SAC Position Descriptions (PDF, 54.72 KB).

The NSW Government invited nominations from people interested in serving as a member of the SAC in late 2017. Applications closed on 16 February 2018.
