Public Safety Advisory – Controlled Release of Water (July 29, 2014)

July 29th, 2014

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that controlled releases of water have ceased.

The Company is no longer releasing water at North Salmon Dam Spillway into the North Salmon River in the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland.

The potential for releases from Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River in the Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula is over for now.

People are advised to continue to use reservoir areas with great caution as water levels and flows are unpredictable.
