Kettle Creek Conservation Authority is reminding parents to use extreme care around Kettle Creek and waterways this March Break.

"It may not look like it, but the ice is not safe to be on," says Jennifer Dow, KCCA's water conservation supervisor. "It's still cold outside but ice seldom freezes or thaws at a uniform rate. The ice can be very thick and strong in one spot while thin and weak in another," warns Dow.

A low pressure system is expected to sweep through the province in the next five days, bringing slightly warmer weather. And while it won't be enough to significantly impact creek levels in terms of flooding, it will cause the ice to become thinner.

"Even though there is still snow on the ground, there are signs of spring. Some melting may happen which will make stream banks extremely slippery and the ice will become weaker and unpredictable." Parents should remind their children to stay away from all water bodies this March Break. Enjoy the outdoors, but stay away from the creek.
