Cascades is down from the dam, not in the dam. You cannot swim in the dam. You can flip the kayak in it though, treading water in 60 odd feet and trying to bale is a joy.
You are allowed to take a whizz in it though.

Nest you’ll be telling me they have sex in there.

I can’t believe the fish don’t get out before they go to the toilet! That’s pretty disgusting.

There is a reason we pre-treat water before we drink it.

People swim in our water supply? I didn’t think it was allowed.
