GRCA lowering the booms

The Grand River Conservation Authority is installing warning booms or white buoys to warn paddlers, anglers and boaters to stay away from the dams.

Spokesperson Cam Linwood says the water around dams can look peaceful but water surges can create strong undertows.

Linwood says the older orange booms are gradually being replaced by yellow ones to meet Transport Canada regulations.

He says the booms will be installed, weather permitting, from April 20th to May 3rd.
