Public Advisory – Controlled Release of Water – Burnt Pond & White Bear River

August 25th, 2020

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that rain forecast for tomorrow could lead to high reservoir inflows and a need to release water in the Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of Central and Southern Newfoundland. The company may need to release 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.
