Public Safety Notice: Annual draw down of Ossokmanuan Reservoir begins March 14

March 6th, 2024

The Churchill Falls Generating Station advises the public of the annual draw down of the Ossokmanuan Reservoir beginning March 14, 2024.

Dangerous ice conditions and open water will result up and downstream of the Gabbro Control Structure and along the narrows at the Ossokmanuan Bridge on the Trans-Labrador Highway. Snowmobilers are advised to use extreme caution along the shorelines as large ice cracks and ice walls may develop.

Safety is our number one priority. The public is advised to always use extreme caution around dykes, dams, and spillways as water levels fluctuate and are always unpredictable.
