Pontiac boaters are being reminded by Petawawa Garrison brass that there is a chance they could encounter unexploded ordinances on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River. If anyone finds an unexploded ordinance, do not touch it and report it to the proper authorities.

Brass at the Petawawa Garrison want to remind boaters on the Ottawa River to keep an eye out for unexploded ordinances.
A press release states that there is a possibility that boaters might encounter these ordinances on beaches on the Ontario side of the river.
Several beaches on the river between Black Point and Black Bear Beach were opened for public access in 2007.
These beaches include Antler Point, Wegner Point, Gust Point and Kiska Beach.
Not only is there a chance of seeing these ordinances on the beaches themselves, but staff at the garrison are also warning about the potential of their presence under water.
