Public Safety Advisory: Annual Draw Down of the Ossokmanuan Reservoir – Churchill Falls

March 6th, 2019

Nalcor Energy Churchill Falls would like to advise the public of the Annual Draw Down of the Ossokmanuan Reservoir beginning at midnight on March 11, 2019. This will result in dangerous ice conditions and open water upstream and downstream of the Gabbro Control Structure and along the narrows at the Ossok Bridge along the Trans-Labrador Highway. Due to receding water levels, snowmobilers are advised to use extreme caution along the shorelines as large ice cracks and ice walls may develop.

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