The Township of Warwick would like to remind everyone that storm water management ponds are not safe for winter activities like ice skating, hockey, sledding, or even walking across.
Storm water management ponds are designed to gather rainfall and surface water runoff, temporarily hold it, and release it slowly at a controlled rate. This provides erosion and flood control, and helps improve surface water quality.
The water going into the ponds, including melting snow and ice, may contain salt and other contaminants that can make any ice that forms unstable and dangerous.
We thank you for your cooperation.
