Trees in Lake Hume

Lake Hume is an artificial water reservoir across the Murray River, Australia's longest river (2500kms in length). It located near Albury close the state border of New South Wales and Victoria and was constructed between 1919-1936 and is used for hydro-electric power generation. It is estimated that Lake Hume can hold about six times the water of Sydney Harbour, but in recent years of draught water levels have been quite low. In 2007 fell to only 1% capacity.
