Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that there is a controlled release of water continuing in the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland.

The company is releasing water at North Salmon Dam Spillway on Great Burnt Lake into the North Salmon River. Snowmobilers, ATV users and travelers to the area are advised to exercise extreme caution as there will be increased and unpredictable water flows in the North Salmon River and downstream areas over the coming days. The public should also be extremely cautious of changing ice conditions in the Round Pond and Long Pond areas – particularly around the shorelines – as a result of this activity.
