March 8, 2013: While spring brings with it longer days and warmer weather,
it also brings melting ice and rains that can make rivers and lakes even more dangerous
"March Break is approaching and KCCA is warning of the dangers of fast flowing water,"
says Luiza Moczarski, public relations supervisor, Kettle Creek Conservation Authority.
"A small amount of rainfall can cause creek levels to rise, faster flowing water
and stream banks to become unsafe."
KCCA is urging all parents and caregivers to ensure that children do not play along
local waterways. Parents and guardians are urged to keep children off the ice and
away from the water. Ice conditions on frozen bodies are unsafe. Stream banks may
be slippery and treacherous.
