LETHBRIDGE, AB – Although Mother Nature has delivered some moderately nice conditions over the last few days, the City of Lethbridge is still reminding residents to be careful around ice-covered water.
“The condition, strength and stability of ice can change dramatically depending on temperature, precipitation, wind and the amount of sunshine,” the city stated, while asking residents to stay off all ice-covered water.
“Residents are also reminded that going on any storm pond ice is prohibited and that ice thickness in storm ponds is not monitored by the City. The only ice that is monitored is at Nicholas Sheran, Henderson and Chinook Lakes, all of which are unsafe at this time.”
Pet owners are also reminded to keep their pets on a leash when walking near ice-covered water.
