Water Safety Saves Lives

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District welcomes your interest in water safety. We want to encourage our visitors to use caution while boating, fishing, or swimming. Watch Your Children! Each year about 200 children drown in the U.S. and several thousand others are treated in hospitals for submersion accidents, accidents which leave children with permanent brain damage and respiratory health problems. Remember, it only takes a few seconds for a small child to wander away and as little as 8 seconds for a child to drown. Children have a natural curiosity and attraction to water. Watch your children at all times when in and around the water and ensure that everyone wears a proper-fitting life jacket. The information on this page and its links will offer essential information that will help you, your family, and friends have a safe, enjoyable recreational experience at our projects.

Recreation Safety

USACE and our federal agency partners have joined the Recreate Responsibly coalition to develop and share general guidelines for getting outside and maintaining access to public lands.  Recreate Responsibly is a working partnership of government agencies, nonprofits, outdoor businesses, and individuals brought together by a love of the outdoors and a desire to help everyone experience the benefits of nature safely during this public health crisis.

We are concerned about your safety and well being while recreating at our lakes.  Please be aware of other situations which may pose a hazard to you or your loved ones health.
