Public Safety Advisory – Controlled Release of Water (July 8, 2014)

July 8th, 2014

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that releases of water have ceased at all its reservoir facilities.

Most recently, in the Star Lake area of Central Newfoundland releases of water at Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake have stopped. In the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland releases of water from its North Salmon Dam spillway into the North Salmon River have stopped. There is still potential for additional releases if weather conditions change.

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