“It's important to remember that many hydroelectric stations and dams are operated remotely, so water near these facilties can turn dangerous quickly and without warning,” says Mike Martelli, OPG’s President, Renewable Generation and Power Marketing. “That's why it’s so important for everyone to stay clear and stay safe.”
The advice is particularly timely. On Saturday, March 17, OPG will hand out free water safety bags and information materials to help keep families safe this winter. Visit www.stayclearstaysafe.ca for more information.
