Haw River Canoe Access Points Closing in Advance of Heavy Rains

Post Date:10/11/2018 9:19 AM
Due to the expected impact of Tropical Storm Michael in our area, Chatham County Emergency Management announces that the Parks & Recreation Department is working with the Sheriff’s Office to close access to the county’s managed canoe access points along the Haw River. If the forecast holds, we can expect path we can expect the Haw River to reach major flood stage later today. We will evaluate conditions at the access points over the next several days before reopening.

We also advise residents that all rivers in the county will be very hazardous once heavy rains begin.
