Swimming in Seis Lagos lakes is prohibited!
Friday afternoon three kids were seen jumping off the dock and the roof of the dock on Lago Grande located on Riva Ridge. They were gone before the Safety Officer could get to the scene. This is not the first time this year swimmers have been spotted at this location.
Aside from property damage, what obviously looks like good ol’ summertime fun can turn into tragedy in a heartbeat. There are many unseen dangers under the surface of the “grey” water. The piers from the previous dock are hidden by the murky water. Fishing hooks and line are tangled around the dock. The bald cypress have many underwater knees. The biggest danger is a child getting caught in the hidden debris, such as old tree limbs, and drowning. Lago Grande is very deep.
Please help keep our kids safe by explaining at home why swimming in ANY of the lakes within the Seis Lagos community are prohibited. If you see anyone swimming in the lakes STOP and call the Guard House and secondly please stay nearby until the Safety Officer arrives or even ask the swimmers to please get out of the water.
We have all seen enough death during this pandemic. Let’s not add another. The water is not safe for swimming, there are many hidden dangers and no one wants to lose a child to a preventable accident.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
