Public Safety Advisory – Controlled Release of Water – Upper Salmon Area

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that there is a potential for controlled releases in the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland.

The company may be required to release water at North Salmon Dam Spillway into the North Salmon River or West Salmon Dam Spillway into the West Salmon River.

People are advised to use these areas with great caution as water levels and flows are higher than normal and may be unpredictable. Water releases at spillways could begin at any time.
