Welsh Water is urging people to abide by the 'no swimming' signs at reservoirs this weekend, no matter how tempting the water may seem.
– Pete Perry, Welsh Water
Our reservoirs are great places to enjoy organised activities but all too often people are tempted to risk taking a swim which can lead to tragic consequences.
While reservoirs might seem like a great place to cool off, they are full of hidden dangers with freezing cold water and strong currents.
We ask customers to remember that reservoirs are working sites that are an important part of the water cycle.
This is why we display signage at these sites and campaigns asking customers not to swim at any time.
