Water Safety and You
We all love to enjoy the White River and its tributaries during these hot summer days. While you're out enjoying the water remember that swift currents can overwhelm even the strongest swimmer. Children are especially susceptible to river currents and it is important to supervise them closely, even in shallow water. Properly fitted life jackets or other U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices are a wonderful addition to your outing, and are strongly encouraged anytime you are on the river or enjoying other swimming and wading opportunities. We'd like to remind everyone that e-coli levels are tested every other week by our friends at White River Partnership.
