Advisory: Work at Star Lake, Aug 12-Sept 4

August 6th, 2021

Hydro is advising the public of work scheduled at Star Lake and use of the Buchans access road, as a safety boom is installed at the Star Lake Intake.
From approximately August 12th to 17th, contractor vehicles will travel via the Buchans access road to transport materials to Star Lake. Work at the Star Lake site will be ongoing from August 12th through September 4th, 2021.
Anyone using these areas and access roads are advised of the increased use and work activity.
Public safety around our dams and hydroelectric facilities is of utmost importance to Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro. The boom is being installed to ensure anyone using Star Lake maintains a safe distance from the intake structure.
