                 PLEASE STAY OFF STORMWATER FACILITIES.  THEY'RE NOT SAFE FOR ANY USE.

  • Stormwater ponds are designed to prevent flooding, erosion and improve the quality of water before it is gradually released back into the nearest stream or river.
  • Please take caution around all bodies of water and remind children to not play in the area.
  • Water may include road salt and other contaminants that affect ice quality.
  • Stay off of any stormwater pond as they are not safe for use.  The ponds may look safe, but it's what's below the surface that makes them different from regular ponds.  As a result, water flow and water levels can fluctuate quickly without warning.
