Update on controlled releases of water – Granite Canal, Star Lake

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travelers in the Granite Canal area accessed from central Newfoundland that the Company is no longer expecting to release water at the Granite Canal Bypass Structure at this time.

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is also advising residents, cabin owners and travelers in the Star Lake area of central Newfoundland that the Company is continuing to release water at the Star Lake Spillway into Star Brook and then Beothuk Lake.

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