Stormwater Pond Safety Reminder


The City of London would like to remind residents to stay off stormwater management ponds.

A stormwater management pond is a constructed facility that is designed to improve surface water quality, provide flood protection, and reduce erosion in downstream watercourses. It is not a natural pond. These stormwater ponds can be found in many neighbourhoods and subdivisions across the city, often in parks.

With unpredictable ice thickness and a continuous flow of water, stormwater ponds are unsafe for recreational uses such as skating, hockey, fishing or tobogganing. For safety, residents are encouraged to keep off the ice.

Residents with questions can call 519-661-4570.
