Even I know to be EXTRA careful when I am around a dam! They don't look scary so it is tempting to get close but falling into a low-head dam can cause you to drown.

Don't ever play near a dam! Even if you aren't in the water, you could slip and fall in. This doesn't mean just big dams. Even small ones can be very dangerous!

You should always have a parent with you when you are near a dam!
