Swimming

Water safety should be the most important factor if you decide to take a swim in a river, lake or stream. Currents, water temperature, flow rates, and bottom topography change every season of the year. A favorite quiet pool from the late summer could be a death trap in early spring. Check all conditions before entering the water. Never dive head first anywhere. Wear suitable safety equipment and keep children close at all times.
