Public Safety Advisory for controlled release of water (November 18, 2013)

November 18th, 2013

November 18, 2013 – Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that reservoir levels are above normal for this time of year. The release of water from the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and from Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River have stopped for now but releases may be required again in the near future.

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.
