OPP WARN RESIDENTS OF DANGEROUS WATER CONDITIONS

 

(Bancroft, Ontario)  With the current streak of warm weather in Bancroft and temperatures forecast in the double digits this week, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are advising residents to be aware of open and fast moving water.

As spring rapidly approaches we will see water levels rise and become unstable due to excessive snow runoff.

 

Rivers will be moving fast with strong currents and the water is still very cold.

 

Residents should be aware of the dangers present around rivers and open water and certainly be mindful of children who might be curious and venture too close to these highly dangerous areas.

 

The OPP strongly urge parents to take the time to properly educate their children of the dangers of spring runoff conditions.

 

Furthermore, the OPP wish to remind snowmobilers and other ice going adventurers to check before you go when approaching frozen waterways. Plan ahead, stop to be sure and proceed only if it’s safe to do so.
