Public Safety Advisory: Potential Controlled Water Release at Jacopie Spillway has Ended

March 7th, 2020

Nalcor Energy Churchill Falls would like to notify the public that the potential controlled water release at the Jacopie Spillway has ended.

We ask the public to continue avoiding the following areas as water levels are always unpredictable and can fluctuate at any given time:

• Jacopie Spillway upstream and down stream of the Spillway.
• Whitefish Control Structure.
• The Churchill River Walking Trail.
• East and West Forebay water storage areas located north of the community of Churchill Falls.

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