NRRM ALERT: River Ice Hazard Warning

NRRM ALERT

In the interest of public safety, Emergency Services has advised the temporary closure of access to the Muskwa River via the Muskwa River boat launches off Airport Road/Sierra Yoyo Desan (SYD) and under the Muskwa River Bridge. The Muskwa River is currently experiencing hazardously rapid water level changes due to ice movement.

The temporary closure will assist Emergency Services as they continue their response to an incident occurring during the early morning of April 23, in which three motor vehicles alongside the river were caught up in rapid ice movement. Two vehicles are trapped in and near the river bed and one vehicle is engulfed in an ice floe.

Thank you for assisting the reponse effort by avoiding the closed accesses until we are advised that it is safe to use them.
