Welcome to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District water safety page. We encourage visitors of our recreation facilities and lakes to use caution while boating, fishing and swimming.
Watch Your Children! Each year about 200 children drown in the U.S. and thousands more are treated in hospitals for water-related incidents, which can cause permanent brain damage and respiratory health problems. It only takes as little as eight seconds for a child to drown. Children have a natural curiosity and attraction to water so make sure they wear a proper-fitting life jacket at all times when in and around the water. The information on this page and its links will offer essential information that will help you, your family, and friends have a safe, enjoyable recreational experience at our projects.
