Public Advisory – Controlled Release of Water, Star Lake area & Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas

November 14th, 2019

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that due to recent and forecasted rainfall, the Company is required to release water in the Star Lake area in Central Newfoundland at Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake.

There is potential that the company may be required to release water in the Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of Central and Southern Newfoundland from the Burnt Dam Spillway into the White Bear River.

People are advised to use these areas with great caution as water levels and flows are higher than normal and may be unpredictable.
