The Canal Safety Challenge is a public competition focused on discovering solutions to improve public safety and reduce drownings in canals throughout the United States and make egress from the canals easier or allow for safer rescue and recovery efforts.
Canals can look like an inviting place to swim or play, but the water can be cold and swift. Steep, slippery canal walls make it difficult to climb out of a canal once a person or animal has entered it. While fences and other barriers can be effective solutions, they may not be cost-effective or practical in all situations.
The Canal Safety Challenge invites you to submit innovative and cost-effective ideas to improve public safety and reduce drownings in canals throughout the United States. The Canal Safety Challenge is being run in partnership with the Bureau of Reclamation, Klamath Irrigation District, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, and Denver Water.
