Important Information About Reservoir Impoundment

A critical step on the path to first power from the Muskrat Falls generating facility is the creation of the reservoir (impoundment). The reservoir is the area upstream of the Muskrat Falls facility – it extends 59km upstream of the facility to Gull Island. 

We have completed impoundment of the Muskrat Falls reservoir. With the completion of impoundment, we are maintaining the reservoir level in its normal operating range of 38.5 – 39.0 metres.
