Md. warns of danger on river, creeks

May 04, 2008

The Maryland Natural Resources Police, based on information received from the National Weather Service and the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, has warned that boating and other recreational uses of the Upper Potomac River, including creeks and streams, should be avoided at this time.

The advisory extends through Monday and will be updated then if necessary.

Due to recent precipitation, river levels are hazardous for recreational use on the main stem of the Upper Potomac River from Cumberland, Md., to Little Falls in Montgomery County, Md.

Hazardous stages are defined as those that can create life-threatening conditions for nonwhitewater vessels, tubers, swimmers and wading fisherman.

Up-to-date information may be obtained by calling the weather service at 703-260-0305.
