Public Safety Advisory – Controlled Release of Water (Update)

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers in central Newfoundland that some controlled releases of water have ceased but there is potential for controlled releases in one additional area.

· The Company is no longer releasing water at Burnt Dam Spillway into the White Bear River.

· The Company is no longer releasing water from its North Salmon Dam spillway into the North Salmon River.

The Company is still releasing water at Granite Canal Bypass Structure, at the Granite Canal Spillway and at the Granite Overflow Dykes along the Burnt Dam access road into Grey River.

· In the Jeddore Lake and Bay d’Espoir areas in Southern Newfoundland, the Company may be required to release water at the Salmon Dam Spillway into the Salmon River

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