“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 ice near our stations is often deceptively thin, and can crack and give way easily. That's why it’s so important foreveryone to stay clear and stay safe.”
The advice is particularly timely. On Saturday, March 17, OPG will hand out freewater safety bags and information materials to help keep families safe this winter. Visit www.opg.com/watersafety for more information.
