Update on controlled release of water: Cat Arm, Star Lake and Upper Salmon areas

November 1st, 2023

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers in the Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on the island’s Northwest Coast that there is no longer the immediate potential for releases of water at the Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River at this time.

Hydro is also advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that water releases are continuing at the following locations:

  • In the Star Lake area of Central Newfoundland at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Beothuk Lake;
  • In the Upper Salmon area of Central Newfoundland at the North Salmon Dam Spillway into the North Salmon River.

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