OPG Water Safety Day

The power of water.

“Water is the driving force of all nature,” is the message of a TV ad from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) that warns about the danger near hydro stations and dams.

The TV ad follows a single drop of water moving through turbulent waters at a hydroelectric generating station, sweeping through its turbines to generate electricity, and ending at a Gravenhurst barber shop powering an electric shaver.

“It's important to remember that many hydroelectric stations and dams are operated remotely, so water near these facilties can turn dangerous quickly and without warning,” says Mike Martelli, OPG’s President, Renewable Generation and Power Marketing. “That's why it’s so important for everyone to stay clear and stay safe.”

The advice is particularly timely. On Saturday, Feb. 25, OPG will hand out free safety bags and information materials to help keep families safe this winter. Visit for more information.
