ADVISORY: Planned outage for parts of Upper Lake Melville, Oct. 29

October 27th, 2021

Hydro is advising of a planned outage affecting all of Sheshatshiu, North West River and the 5 Wing Goose Bay base. (Please see detailed list below)

In an effort to reduce the impact on customers, the outage is scheduled for the overnight hours from 1:00 a.m. – 4:00 a.m. this Friday, October 29.

The work is completed at Churchill Falls, which requires the main transmission line serving Upper Lake Melville to come offline. Backup generation will be used to provide power to most customers. However, the areas noted will be without power during this time as electricity demand is greater than backup units can provide.

Customers impacted:
Line #7 – North West River and Sheshatshiu
NORTH WEST RIVER
SHESHATSHIU
NORTH WEST RIVER RD
DOCK AREA
NORTHSIDE
CANADIAN SIDE
– TORONTO ST
– WINNIPEG ST
Line #17 – 5 Wing Goose Bay

We understand the impact that outages have on customers and apologize for this interruption. For outage information, check www.nlhydro.com/outages, call us at 1-888-737-1296, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
