Halifax News Municipality advises caution due to thin ice, open water throughout the region

Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality’s ice thickness testing program is not yet underway for the 2016 winter season, but there is noticeable thin ice and open water in many lakes across the region.

Throughout the winter months, ice thickness reports for lakes tested by the municipality will be available to the public at any time online at www.redcross.ca/what-we-do/swimming-and-water-safety/swimming,-boating-and-water-safety-tips/ice-safety.

The municipality reminds all citizens to ensure ice conditions are safe, and to exercise extreme caution when walking, skating or participating in other outdoor events on frozen lakes this winter season.
