Ice Cutting and Breaking Notice

Ice Cutting and Breaking

The RM of St. Clements has been in contact with WERi and they have notified us that their ice cutting crews will begin working on or about February 21st on sections of the Red River beginning in the Netley Lake area and will move upstream towards Selkirk. 

We will continue to have discussions with WERi and will be regularly communicating updates with our residents regarding ice cutting and breaking, river levels and forecasted thaws as they become available.

Please be advised that although dangerous ice conditions may not be obvious, they will exist during ice cutting and ice breaking operations.

Ice fishers, cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and other going on the frozen river must:

  • Use caution on the ice
  • Stay away from the ice cutting and ice breaking equipment
  • Watch for posted warning signs about dangerous ice
  • Watch for notices to remove ice shacks and remove them promptly
