DNR warns river users



Maryland Department of Natural Resources has announced that boating and other recreational uses of the Upper Potomac River should be avoided through Thursday.

Recent rainfall has made river levels on the main stem of the Potomac River from Paw Paw, Md. to Little Falls, Md., hazardous.

Hazardous stages are those levels which, because of hypothermia, wave action, high velocity or treacherous currents, non-white water vessels, tubers, swimmers, or people standing in the water fishing could be confronted with life threatening conditions.

This warning doesn't apply to professionally guided river trips or teams of experienced white water paddlers.
