Public Advisory – Controlled release of water at Star Lake

November 20th, 2019

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that due to recent rainfall, we are required to release water in the Star Lake area in central Newfoundland at Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Red Indian Lake.

Hydro is no longer releasing water at the Granite Canal area accessed from Central Newfoundland but there is potential for further releases.

There is no longer potential for releases at the Burnt Pond and White Bear River areas of Central and Southern Newfoundland.

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