Advisory: Controlled water release at Jacopie Spillway now ended

October 5th, 2022

The Churchill Falls Generating Station is advising the public that the controlled water release at the Jacopie Spillway has now ended.

The public is asked to continue avoiding the following areas as water levels may continue to fluctuate and are always unpredictable:

  • Jacopie and Watefish Spillways;
  • Churchill River bed downstream of the Jacopie Spillway;
  • East and West Forebay water storage areas located north of the community of Churchill Falls.

We thank the public for their cooperation during this time.

Safety is always our number one priority. The public is advised to always use extreme caution around dykes, dams and spillways as water levels in these areas are always unpredictable.
