Public Safety Advisory: Controlled Release of Water

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that the Company is releasing water in the Star Lake area of central Newfoundland at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Beothuk Lake.

The Company is also advising that a potential for release remains in the Granite Canal area accessed from central Newfoundland at the Granite Canal Bypass Structure.

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