Stay safe at our reservoirs
We want to keep all visitors to our recreational sites safe, and with over 150 reservoirs across the North West, it’s vital to spread the message that reservoirs are beautiful – but deadly.
Reservoirs can be extremely dangerous, and are not the place for swimming even on the warmest of days. Here, we have some useful information for parents, teachers, and young people to spread awareness of our water safety messaging.
