Conservation Authorities are reminding residents of 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 quickly approaching and with warmer temperatures, people look 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.

Please keep family members and pets safely away from any water’s edge and help make this an enjoyable spring.

For more information, contact your local conservation authority.

Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the Credit River. We have been working for almost 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River watershed for present and future generations.
