Advisory: Feb 3 Update on Controlled Water Release in Central Newfoundland

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers in the Granite Canal area accessed from Central Newfoundland that the Company may need to water release at the Granite Canal Bypass structure.

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

Furthermore, the Company is no longer releasing water at the following locations:

  • The Star Lake area of Central Newfoundland at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Beothuk Lake;
  • The Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of Central and Southern Newfoundland at Burnt Dam Spillway into the White Bear River;
