Creeks, lakes, rivers and dams may vary in size, depth and visibility. Swimming or recreating in these environments is fun, but there are many hidden dangers that can cause serious injuries. Hazards may include water temperature, rocky areas, submerged objects, and slippery, steep banks that may or may not visible.

Children must always be supervised when in, on or around creeks, lakes, rivers and dams. You should also obey any warning or safety signs for the location.

If you are swimming in these locations, never swim alone and always tell someone where you are going.
