WARNING SIGNS INSTALLED NEAR RIVER DAMS

May 25, 2016 - More than 30 signs and buoys are being installed along the St. Joseph and Maumee rivers to promote awareness of the dangers of low-head (small) dams.

A committee made up of representatives from The Pelorus Project, the City of Fort Wayne (Utilities, Community Development and Fire), Northeast Indiana Regional Coordinating Council, Northeast Indiana Water Trails, Tri-State Watershed Alliance, A Better Fort and The Indiana Silverjackets (a voluntary inter-agency natural hazard mitigation team working to protect life, property and resources) came together after last year’s tragic drowning of a kayaker to work to improve safety along the rivers.

The signs will warn of the dangers of dams and the strong recirculating currents created just downstream of the dams. The signs and buoys will be placed in the water, on the riverbanks and on bridges near the St. Joseph dam, the Hosey Street dam and the Leo Cedarville dam.
