Be Cautious Of Hidden Hazards Below Floodwaters

The City of Ottawa is urging residents to be cautious as hidden hazards may lie beneath the floodwaters. Some of these hazards could include debris carried downstream and deposited at a new location – such as residential areas, parks and pathways.

 

Some of the hazards include:

 

  • Natural wood
  • Pieces of fencing and docks
  • Glass and construction hardware – such as screws and nails

 

In addition, people must be aware that floodwaters may hide changes in elevation – such as ditches, open drains, pools and creeks. Take precautions when walking in areas whether or not you are familiar with the area.
