June 23rd, 2022

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

  • Victoria Lake and Victoria River area in southwestern Newfoundland at the Victoria Dam Spillway;
  • Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on the island’s northwest coast at the Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River; and
  • Granite Canal area accessed from Central Newfoundland at the Granite Canal Bypass Structure.

Additionally, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers in the Star Lake area of Central Newfoundland that the company may be required to release water at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Beothuk Lake in the coming days.

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