GRCA rolling out booms and buoys
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.
