*NEW* Flag System
We’re excited to introduce our new Flag System! The flag system is being provided as a courtesy to warn Members of dangers that have been identified. We use a flag system to help inform users of the potential current risk level of using the lake. It is important to remember that there are always dangers associated with using the lake, and members and their guests use the lake at their own risk.
Flag colours and their associated meanings:
• GREEN FLAGS: No known elevated risk of using the lake. There are always risks associated with lake use, but no additional or increased risks have been identified.
• YELLOW FLAGS: Potential elevated risk of using the lake. Exercise caution and discretion prior to and/or during use.
• RED FLAGS: Known increased risk of using the lake. Lake access is prohibited for ALL USERS.
The flags are placed around the lake strategically in various locations that allow them to be visible from different parts of the lake and lakeshore. There are 4 locations: near the Fishing Dock, near the Tennis Courts, at Entry Park, and at the Southwest Cove.
Members should not rely solely on the flag system and should continue to exercise judgment and caution at all times. For clarity and removal of doubt, if red flags are being displayed, it means the lake is CLOSED, and there is no access allowed for any users. To find out the current status of the Lake please visit www.lakesummerside.ca > ‘Flags’ > Current Status.
Stay tuned for any updates via our social media, website, and newsletter. For more information about the Flag System please visit: www.lakesummerside.ca > ‘Flags’ > Information.
