As Labor Day weekend approaches, GRDA urges safe boating

(Continued)

LANGLEY —

Also, please be aware of the signs, buoys, sirens, fencing and flashing lights you may see around Pensacola Dam, Robert S. Kerr Dam and the Salina Pumped Storage Project. These are all intended to notify you of areas where water may rise swiftly, no trespassing or no diving is allowed or footing is unstable.
GRDA also reminds visitors that Labor Day weekend is the last chance to take advantage of this summer’s free tours of historic Pensacola Dam. Not only is the dam Oklahoma’s first hydroelectric facility, but it is also a member of the National Register of Historic Places. Tours originate from the GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center, located just west of the dam. Remember to wear comfortable shoes (there is a fair amount of walking involved) and dress for the weather if you are planning on taking the tour.
Finally, due to Homeland Security regulations, all persons over 18 are required to present some form of ID. Please be prepared to show that before taking the free tour of an Oklahoma structure that has captured the interest of the public since 1940.
Whether you are coming to the water, to the shore, to the dam tour or, perhaps all three, GRDA encourages you to keep these tips in mind as you enjoy the Labor Day weekend. For more information on water safety, boating regulations or free tours of historic Pensacola Dam, visit grda.com or call (918) 782 4726.
