Haw River dangerous in High Water

?

The Haw River has had historic flooding the year, and the waters are dangerous during high water due to currents and pollution. The Haw River has claimed the lives of paddlers and swimmers over the years.  Earlier this spring, Chatham County emergency personnel rescued a kayaker during high waters.  Don’t swim when the water is high, and for paddlers, check the river gauges and river level safety information HERE
