Reservoir warning during heat wave

Created on 17/06/2022 @ 11:48


Hafren Dyfrdwy is warning people to stay out of its reservoirs as the region bakes in glorious weather.

Despite the high temperatures, the water company is telling local people to resist the temptation not take a dip in one of its reservoirs.

The company, that manages Lake Vyrnwy (pictured) and Llyn Clywedog in Powys, has issued the reminder, saying reservoirs can be dangerous places to swim because of strong currents, freezing temperatures and hidden dangers under the surface.

Dan Taberner, Visitor Experience Manager at Hafren Dyfrdwy, said: “It’s always fantastic to see people enjoying our wonderful sites and while we really want to encourage people to enjoy themselves in the lovely weather, we’d like to remind them to stay out of the water.

“We know how tempting reservoirs can look in the warm weather, but we don’t have lifeguards on site or safe swimming areas, so we’d ask visitors to not take that risk.”
