Inland Waterways  - know the risks

Local rivers and other waterways can be dangerous places to swim, even for experienced swimmers and unfortunately, drownings have occurred in local waterways over the years.

The water can be icy cold, there are submerged trees and rocks and deceptively strong currents. Sometimes people may overestimate their swimming ability, or may have consumed alcohol before swimming, or may be unfamiliar with local conditions or recent changes to the river.
