Canal Safety

Fresno Irrigation Districts’ prime concern is the safety of others and its employees.  For this reason, the District does not allow any swimming, fishing, playing, or other recreational activities in and around its canals.  During the hot summer months the water may look inviting but underneath the surface are very cold and powerful currents that will pull a person under very quickly.  Please make sure you and especially young children stay a safe distance from all canals.
