A frozen water way with a red sign, leaning, that says thin ice.

Tragically, every year children drown in Ontario's waterways. Quinte Conservation developed the Spring Water Awareness Program. The goal of this program is to teach children of the dangers linked to spring water runoff.

QC is the lead flood-warning agency and has a related interest in public safety. As such, we created this curriculum-based teacher resource kit for use in area schools. The Spring Water Awareness Program helps teachers promote safety and create awareness.

Let's teach our children of the dangers that exist at this time of year and, through education, prevent a tragedy.
