Safety Message - Under Water Hazards
Friday, March 10, 2017
Keystone Lake has numerous underwater hazards. Be especially watchful for submerged stumps, logs, particularly in shallow water and along shoreline. This is especially important during periods when the lake level is below normal. Sudden swift rises may occur when water is being released for power below the dam. A horn will sound when water releases begin and during the time water is being released. Heed the warning.
