Advisory: Potential for water release in Burnt Pond, White Bear River areas

January 4th, 2022

Residents, cabin owners and travellers are advised that heavy rainfall forecast for this week could lead to high reservoir inflows and a need for Hydro to release water in the Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of central and southern Newfoundland. More specifically, this would involve releasing water at the Burnt Dam Spillway into the White Bear 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.
