FREDERICTON (GNB) – River Watch 2014 issued an ice movement and flood advisory today at 1:30 p.m.:

Environment Canada has forecast warm temperatures during daylight and night hours with rainfall in the amount of 10 - 25 millimetres across the province over the next 24 hours.

Temperatures remain conducive to melting the snow pack and the deterioration of ice covers in all regions. River flows are forecast to increase throughout the basin and there is a high probability of ice movement along the St. John River and other river systems across the province within the next two days. With ice movement there is the potential for ice jams to occur as well as associated flooding. People living in all regions should be prepared and remain a safe distance away from waterways.

Ice jams in place since January may hold back water as levels increase, leading to localized flooding. Jams are located at:

  • Nashwaak River at MacLaggan Bridge, Tay Bridge, Durham Bridge and Marysville Bridge; and
  • Southwest Miramichi River: below the Doaktown Bridge and at Norrad's Bridge in the rural community of Upper Miramichi.

Ice movement has been occurring in the Kennebecasis River system and the Nashwaak River. Ice jams have formed within the last 48 hours but are currently not holding back water at the following locations:

  • Hammond River between the Route 860 and Lakeside Road intersection to one kilometre above the French Village Covered bridge or Hwy 1;
  • Hammond River at Route 100;
  • Smith Creek River near the Oldfield Road; and
  • Nashwaak River at Taymouth.

Water levels on the Nashwaak River are forecast to reach flood stage on Tuesday, April 15. However flooding may also occur associated with ice movement and ice jamming.

The next River Watch bulletin will be issued on Monday, April 14.

Safety information

  • People living or working along streams, tributaries and rivers are asked to be on the alert for ice movement and the possibility of ice-jam formation resulting in rapid water-level increases.
  • A change in weather conditions could lead to flooding in areas where drainage systems are blocked by ice and snow.
  • Individuals living or working in areas that are prone to flooding should remain aware and take proper precautions to safeguard their homes and possessions.
  • Because of the deterioration of ice covers it is now unsafe to cross waterways on foot, snowmobiles and ATVs.
  • Residents should avoid using boats or kayaks on open water as currents are fast, may be carrying debris and the water is cold.
  • Residents are advised to review their personal flood plan and have an emergency kit on hand.
