Manitoba Amphibexes In Action Again

Amphibexes In Action

WINNIPEG - Manitoba's Amphibexes are back at it on the Red River.

Three of the ice-breaking machines and other remote-controlled ice-cutters are working on about 28 kilometres from Selkirk to Netley Marsh.

If conditions allow, work could also be done on the Icelandic River in Riverton and at the outlet of the Portage Diversion.

The program to help ease ice jamming along the Red and on other rivers in the province began in 2006.

When ice jams, the risk of flooding increases.
