GRCA rolling out booms and buoys

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

Warn­ing booms and buoys are be­ing re­de­ployed this week around Grand River Con­ser­va­tion Author­ity dams. They serve to re­mind pad­dlers, an­glers and boaters to stay clear.

The older or­ange booms at dams are grad­u­ally be­ing re­placed by yel­low booms, con­sis­tent with reg­u­la­tions set by Trans­port Canada, which over­sees nav­i­ga­ble wa­ter­ways. For this rea­son, some of the booms are or­ange and some are yel­low. The booms are made of plas­tic floats joined to­gether by a chain.
