The National Parks Association of NSW today released a comprehensive research paper that found all of the claimed benefits of the Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro storage project to be overstated or false.
Scientific experts have warned that if the massive Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro
development goes ahead it will spread noxious pests, weeds and diseases
throughout the alpine river system and downstream, causing catastrophic damage to aquatic environments, commercial fish farms and recreational fishing.
Growing opposition to the unacceptable environmental impact, immense cost and dubious community benefits of the Snowy 2.0 project is proven by the recently released public submissions on the Main Works Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The National Parks Association of NSW today released a comprehensive research paper which demonstrates that the Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro storage project does not stack up on either environmental or financial grounds and its benefits are overstated.
