The Latest On Chatham-Kent Ice Jams

 

The good news is water levels continue to drop around the region but there is still a lot of concern over these slow moving ice jams.

Chatham-Kent officials are continuing to monitor the jams and make repairs to the dike system as they see fit, especially around Jeannette’s Creek.

The jams continue to grow in size because of the ice floating down river, and it now extends  to the mouth of the river just west of the Prairie Siding Bridge.

At the same time the water continues to flow under the ice.

The public is being asked to avoid roads in the area since conditions could change quickly.

The localized state of emergency enacted Friday will remain in place until the situation has fully stabilized

The municipality’s main phone number of (519) 360-1998 is being staffed until further notice for residents who have questions or concerns.
