Water Safety

Irrigation channels are not a safe place to swim or play. 

As well as the known dangers like varying water depths, submerged objects and snakes, things have changed over the years: 

  • Automated structures can trap and drown you 
  • Polyethylene linings are very slippery, and 
  • remotely operated gates can cause unpredictable currents and undertows. 

Look out for your children and pets. Keep them safe.  Keep them away from channels.

Don’t swim in irrigation channels. 

Swim under supervision in the local pool instead.
