High River Level Advisory
The Winnipeg Police Service would once again like to remind the public that due to high river levels and fast moving currents, river conditions continue to be extremely dangerous.
Members of the public are requested to stay away from all river banks and dikes at this time.
Members of the public are also requested to refrain from the use of boats on the river system until further notice. Hidden debris and ice may still be present causing hazardous conditions.
Parents and teachers are urged to warn children of the dangers of playing in or near bodies of water, such as rivers, storm water retention ponds (man-made lakes), creeks, streams, and ditches.
PLEASE BE SAFE.
