 Warmer Temperatures Coming: Be Careful Around Waterways

Spring melt brings with it hazardous conditions

Newmarket, ON – March 4, 2016 – Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) is reminding residents of the dangers that exist near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes around this time of year and urge people to keep family and pets away from the edge of all waterways.

Spring is q
uickly approaching, with warmer temperatures expected this weekend and into next week. That means people will be looking forward to getting outdoors. Warmer temperatures, however, also bring rain, melting snow and ice, which can contribute to higher, faster flowing water in watercourses. Slippery and unstable stream banks and extremely cold water temperatures can also lead to very hazardous conditions close to any body of water.
