Public Advisory: Controlled Release of Water (update)

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers  in central Newfoundland that the Company may be required to release water at the Granite Canal Spillway into Grey River.

Due to high water levels from heavy rainfall, it may be necessary for the release of water at Granite Canal Bypass Structure and/or the Granite Canal Spillway and the Granite Overflow Dykes along the Burnt Dam access road into Grey River within the next 12 – 24 hours

The Company continues to release water from its North Salmon Dam spillway into the North Salmon River.

Releases of water may also be required in the Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of central and southern Newfoundland. The Company may be required to release water from 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.
