Lake Hume is an artificial lake in Australia formed by the Hume Weir east of Albury-Wodonga on the Murray River just downstream of its junction with the Mitta River.
The Hume Power Station is a 58-megawatt hydro-electric power station is installed in the dam wall, and is primarily used for peak-load generation.
Monitoring of the dam in the early 1990s revealed that the water pressure and leakage had caused the dam to move on its foundations slightly, leading to concerns that the dam was heading for collapse, threatening Albury-Wodonga and the entire Murray basin with it.

Lake Hume, with a capacity of 3,038 gigalitres (GL) or 3,038,000 megalitres, is the Commission's primary regulating storage.
Inflows from the Hume catchment, excluding flows from Dartmouth Dam and the Snowy Mountains Scheme, are variable but about equal, on average, to the storage capacity.
Hume and Dartmouth are operated in a coordinated manner, with releases being made from Dartmouth to share the available "airspace" between the two storages, (airspace is the difference between the volume of water actually in the storage and the volume which would be held in the storage if it was full).

 Why they're thirsting for change at Lake Hume - theage.com.au
The lake is under a high blue-green algae alert, which means people cannot drink or touch the water and livestock risk death by drinking it.
Given that water from the Hume flows into the Murray, a 1400-kilometre stretch of the river to Wentworth, near Mildura, is now on a medium alert for blue-green algae.
Towns around the weir, such as Lake Hume Village, Bellbridge and Tallangatta, have had to truck in water, and towns and cities below the dam that rely on the river for drinking water - such as Albury and Wodonga - are having to treat their water with activated carbon or find another source.

 CSIRO PUBLISHING - Marine & Freshwater Research
In Lake Hume, a reservoir located in an active agricultural zone of the Murray River catchment, Australia, time series for the abundances of phytoplankton and zooplankton taxa, monitored from 1991 through to 1996, were stationary (without trends), and plankton taxonomic composition did not change.
Significant deviations of the Lake Hume successional pattern from the PEG model included maxima for phytoplankton abundance being in winter and the presence of a clear water phase without large zooplankton grazers.
The instability of the water level in Lake Hume probably causes the dynamics of most planktonic populations to be less predictable, but did not initiate the declining trends that have been observed in some other Australian reservoirs.
