History

The construction of Caddigat Lakes was an epic task.  The team Rod put together included the Kennedy brothers. The brothers and their equipment were made famous in the Snowy hydro scheme finished 20 years earlier and a lot of the plant can still be seen in the museum at Adaminaby.  The dams had to be carefully prepared, submerged islands and features built in, and pipes and spillways engineered into the design.  Tonnes and tonnes of volclay (bentonite) was used to make sure the dams don’t leak.
