Brookfield harnesses the natural forces of wind and water to provide a safe and sustainable source of electricity. The same rivers that provide clean, renewable hydropower are also enjoyed year-round by individuals and families for recreation. We urge everyone to share the rivers safely. Brookfield proudly supports the National Boating Safety Council’s “Wear It!” campaign
, aimed at promoting water safety and the use of approved life jackets.
The Wear it! Oswego campaign is an example of how Brookfield works with local community partners to increase awareness about water safety near dams. Read the latest Wear it! Oswego newsletter, Float
Brookfield’s collaboration with national and local water safety initiatives was recognized in 2011 with an Outstanding Stewards of America’s Water Public Education and Outreach Award from the National Hydropower Association
Brookfield uses Waterline to provide up to date river and release information on many of its facilities. Waterline is a national electronic publication that provides river flow forecasts and water level reports over the telephone and on the Web. Waterline flow forecasts are provided by the controllers of the sites being forecast and are updated in real time. These forecasts are published simultaneously on the telephone hotline and Waterline’s Web site. Most river level readings are taken from river gauges that report over the NOAA’s GOES satellite system. These readings are taken directly from the satellite feed and are usually available on the hotline within two minutes from the time they are transmitted from the gauge.
