Public Safety Advisory – Potential for Controlled Release of Water

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that there is potential for controlled release of water at the following locations:

  • Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula. The Company may release water from its Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River.
  • Star Lake in Central Newfoundland. The Company may release water at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake.
  • Victoria Lake and Victoria River area in south western Newfoundland.

People are advised to use all reservoir 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.
