Dam Safety by Sigrid Pilgrim

Every year, a dam and the hydraulics below, claims someone’s life.  Whether a paddler, fisherman, or inner-tuber – recognize the danger of dams and the hydraulics that form on the downstream side.   IPC has an educational video, produced by Tom Lindblade, on the danger of dams – so please – watch it. And if you are involved with a club, or any other organization – spread the word.  Click here for a brief, but very educational and informative video on the dangers of dams.





You can also order a copy of the DVD by sending a $10.00 check, made payable to Illinois Paddling Council, to:
