Spring is quickly approaching and with the warmer temperatures, everyone looks forward to getting outdoors.
However, the warmer temperatures also bring rain, melting snow and ice, which can contribute to higher, faster flowing water in our waterways.
In addition, slippery and unstable stream banks and extremely cold water temperatures can lead to very hazardous conditions close to any water body.
The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority reminds residents and visitors to the Lake Simcoe Watershed of the dangers that exist near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes around this time of year.
Keep your family and pets away from any water’s edge and help make this a safe and enjoyable spring.
