Being on the water is always fun, just remember there’s always hazards involved in it. Take time to read over this post and have a great and safe 4th of July!Due to the nice weather, we are seeing increased use of the Swatara Creek or Swatty. Just wanted to take a minute and go over some safety tips. -Make sure juveniles are always supervised by an adult.-If you are kayaking or tubing, please make sure you wear a snug fitting life jacket. -Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Watch for signs! Especially near the Low Head Dam and any Roadway/Bridge names, so you know your closest location in case of an emergency.-Follow any posted rules near water way, they are there to keep everyone safe.-Stay away from bridge columns and low head dams. Water can pin you against bridge columns. And dams can trap you in the boil and make it very hard to escape. Stay safe and we hope everyone enjoys your holiday weekend! 🇺🇸🎇🎆 ... See moreSee less
