Updated Public Safety Advisory: Water releases ceased for now

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising residents, cabin owners and travellers that water releases have ceased in the Jackson’s Arm and White Bay area on the Great Northern Peninsula. The Company has stopped releasing water from its Cat Arm Spillway into the Cat Arm River but releases could begin again if wet weather continues.

People are advised to use 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.
