Celebrate the Fourth of July Safely – Around Water

Simple precautions ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend

With the water recreation season in full swing during the Fourth of July weekend, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) reminds customers to be safe around all waterways, including PG&E’s Lake Almanor and Lake Britton.

For a safe and happy holiday, PG&E, which operates a vast network of hydropower facilities throughout the Sierra Nevada and Southern Cascade mountain ranges, is asking its customers to follow these water safety tips:

Water Safety Tips

  • Stay off of flume walkways and never get in a flume or canal.  Canals and flumes have steep, slippery sides and icy cold water. Once in a canal or flume, it can be very difficult to get out.
  • With the drought causing lower lakes and rivers, unseen hazards like rocks and trees can be closer to the surface.
  • Conditions change quickly in open water and even the best swimmers can misjudge the water and their skills when boating or swimming. Wearing a life jacket can increase survival time. Know your skill and don’t swim or boat alone.
  • Teach children that swimming in open water is not the same as swimming in a pool. They need to be aware of uneven surfaces, river currents, ocean undertow and changing weather. Never leave children unattended.
