Visiting Mud Lake

Mud Lake is a tiny community nestled on the Churchill River, across from Happy Valley-Goose Bay. In summer, it can only be reached by boat and construction of the Muskrat Falls dam is changing the sand bars in the river, making navigation treacherous.  Residents fear that if the dam fails their community will be washed away and they may not receive enough notice for safe evacuation.
