Public Advisory: Government Monitoring Water Levels at Mud Lake Road

Local residents of Mud Lake and Happy Valley-Goose Bay are advised that the Provincial Government is monitoring elevated water levels on Mud Lake Road.

There is currently no impact on road infrastructure. Crews are on site and are ready to implement temporary safety measures as necessary. The public is asked to take safety precautions in the vicinity of the road.

Officials continue to monitor both water levels and ice conditions on the Lower Churchill River and are in close contact with the Local River Watch Committee as the spring melt season progresses. The public can view the water levels at the end of Mud Lake Road at: www.mae.gov.nl.ca/wrmd/ADRS/v6/Template_Station.asp?station=03OE018.

Updates are being provided to emergency management partners by the Emergency Services Division of the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment.
