We want to keep all visitors to our reservoirs safe.
Reservoirs can be extremely dangerous.
Points to remember to keep you safe…
- Deep water and steep sides, reservoirs are very deep with sudden drops and steep sides, making it difficult to get out
- Remote locations – it may be difficult for emergency services to help anyone in trouble
- Strong currents caused by machinery under the water
- Cold water shock can take your breath away and lead to panic and death – reservoirs are very cold
