With recent heavy rains across Oklahoma and in the Grand River watersheds, the Grand River Dam Authority Police Department is sharing some important safety tips for those who will be visiting Grand Lake and Lake Hudson in the coming days. Although water levels may return to more normal conditions by the July 4 holiday weekend, these are important tips to always keep in mind to help promote safe outings on these popular Oklahoma waters.

GRDA posts its floodwater recent bulletins on its Facebook page. You can also find the latest lake level information on the “Lake Levels” link on

If you need immediate assistance on the water, the GRDA Police recommends you call 911. However, if you are on the boat with no cell phone access, you can use Marine Band 16 to radio for help.
