Stay clear and stay safe while celebrating the holidays
TORONTO, Dec. 20, 2017 /CNW/ - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is reminding the public to stay safe this holiday season by obeying all warning signs, fencing and booms near its hydroelectric stations and dams.
"The holiday season is always a great time to get together with family, friends and loved ones, so let's keep it safe," warns Mike Martelli, OPG's President Renewable Generation. "Stay away from rivers and dams. The changing currents and flows near our stations mean that if ice starts to form it will be thin and not safe for recreation."
OPG's dams and stations are often controlled hundreds of kilometres away. Water flow and currents can change rapidly and without warning. If you are enjoying the outdoors over the holidays stay clear and stay safe.

OPG generates safe, clean, reliable, low-cost power for Ontario. More than 99 per cent of this power is free of smog and carbon emissions. OPG's power is priced 40 per cent lower than other generators, which helps moderate customer bills.
