OPG is reminding all users of the waterways to "Stay Clear, Stay Safe"
TORONTO, March 9, 2017 /CNW/ - As students close their books for a week off school, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is reminding everyone to continue to exercise caution when around Ontario's waterways.
"OPG operates 65 hydroelectric stations and 240 dams on 26 river systems in Ontario," said Mike Martelli, President, Renewable Generation and Power Marketing. "This time of year can bring changing river conditions as snow and ice melts and rain falls. Everyone needs to be aware of the dangers around hydro stations and dams and ensure they know to stay clear, stay safe."
OPG properties and facilities are clearly marked with warning signs, fences, booms and barriers to indicate dangerous areas. Stay clear of these unsafe areas, and respect the signs and barriers that are in place for your protection.
Make sure your March break is a safe one. To learn more about safety, please visit opg.com/watersafety.
OPG generates safe, clean, reliable, low cost power for Ontario. More than 99 per cent of this power is free of smog and greenhouse gas emissions. OPG's power is priced 40 per cent lower than other generators, which helps moderate customer bills.
