Hydro Safety

Don’t let one mistake around a hydro electric dam change your life forever!

An innocent recreational activity can quickly turn to tragedy when warning signs, fences, and barriers are not respected around hydro electric dams.


  • Stay away from restricted areas near hydro-electric dams
  • Always keep an eye out for signs, buoys and barriers near hydro-electric dams
  • Never stand below a dam, anchor or tie your boat there.  Stay well back of dry riverbeds below dams
