This paper outlines the assessment of local amenity benefits arising out of increased flows along Australia's Snowy River. The assessment used indicators of river condition to address the amenity issues raised by local residents. An expert panel provided information on how these indicators would respond to increased flow and catchment-management scenarios. The key finding of the assessment was that catchment management measures were likely to have a more substantial impact on amenity than increased flow.
