Public Safety Advisory for Controlled Release of Water Updated

November 12th, 2013

November 12, 2013 – Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that reservoir levels are above normal for this time of year.

There is a controlled release of water in central Newfoundland from the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake.

The Company has stopped releasing water at Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River in the Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula 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.
