DON'T attempt going over Dam

What looks "easy" will pin and drown you - KILL - you and your friends.
Stay away from Low Head Dams which look like an infinity pool from a distance.
If you see a "flat line" on the river, immediately get off the river, and walk around the dam
 - live to paddle another day !
