       3) Lake Margaret Hydro-electric Power Scheme
A current issue of industrial heritage in Tasmania has been generating discussion among
ICOMOS members and others of late, and was briefly covered in the Tasmanian State Report to
the Adelaide meeting of the Executive meeting. In July 2006Hydro Tasmania ceased operation
of the historic Lake Margaret Hydro-electric Power Scheme, partly for safety reasons and partly
so that re-development in 3 years would attract Mandatory Renewable Energy Target credits.

Built near Queenstown in 1914 by the Mt Lyell Mining & Railway Company, the 10 MW scheme
was purchased by Hydro Tasmania in 1985 to help the ailing company out. The station still
contains its original equipment and has run continuously for 92 years. An energetic campaign to
keep the station running was not successful.

A major safety concern was the poor condition of the 2.2 km long woodstave pipeline which was
due for replacement several years ago. Studies on the future of the scheme have been going on for
10 years and are not yet resolved.

Engineering Heritage Tasmania hosted a public lecture in Hobart by Hydro representatives in
August 2006. The speakers described the cultural heritage program covering all of Hydro
Tasmania's assets, the Conservation Management Plan for the Lake Margaret scheme, and the
care and preservation measures being taken during the shut down period.

The Scheme has been provisionally listed on the Tasmania Heritage Register. Hydro Tasmania
intends to appeal against the West Coast Council's refusal to allow demolition of the pipeline, and
aims to produce the Business Case for the future of the scheme later this year.
