DNR police say river is dangerous

November 04, 2002

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - Boaters and others should avoid the upper Potomac River from Harpers Ferry to Little Falls at least through Monday due to hazardous water levels, according to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Recent precipitation has made the river and adjacent streams dangerous for boaters, tubers, swimmers or wading anglers, DNR police announced Saturday.

The warning does not apply to professionally guided river trips or teams of experienced white-water paddlers. Call the National Weather Service at 1-703-260-0305 for the latest information on Potomac River conditions between Cumberland, Md., and Little Falls, just north of Washington.
