Dam Safety Weekly Monitoring Summary Reports

Our Dam Safety Weekly Monitoring Summary Reports provide a summary of the monitoring and instrumentation readings for the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric generating facility. These reports will be issued weekly during impoundment of the Muskrat Falls reservoir.   

We have designed our dam safety monitoring program to detect any effects arising from the force or pressure of the water from the reservoir on permanent structures including the South Dam, Powerhouse, Spillway, North Dam, North Spur and three Transition Dams. We use a combination of manual and automated processes to frequently monitor the facility to confirm that the structures are performing as designed and expected. Trained staff walks around the structures to inspect, observe, and record the structures’ behaviour and travel by helicopter to survey the entire reservoir area. Various instruments measure and record conditions such as water pressure, movement, water level and temperature.
