Stay Safe

The GRCA is warning Grand River watershed residents that flows will be much higher than normal and will not be safe for recreational activities.

Please exercise extreme caution around all water bodies. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery at this time and, when combined with current weather conditions, pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses.
