Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers in the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland that controlled releases of water are ongoing at the North Salmon Dam spillway into the North Salmon River.

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is also advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that the company may soon be required to release water at the following locations. Releases could begin at any time.

  • in the Granite Canal area accessed from Central Newfoundland at the Granite Canal Bypass Structure;
  • in the Victoria Lake and Victoria River area in southwestern Newfoundland at the Victoria Dam Spillway;
