Advisory: Controlled Release of Water in Multiple Locations

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that the company is currently releasing water at the following locations:

  • Star Lake in Central Newfoundland at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake;
  • the Victoria Lake and Victoria River area in Southwestern Newfoundland at the Victoria Dam Spillway; and,
  • the Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on the island’s Northwest Coast at the Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River.

People are advised to use these areas with great caution as water levels and flows will be higher than normal and may be unpredictable.
