With the impending spring melt that we are all excited for, one major issue we monitor closely ever year is the ice out of our many rivers and streams. Last fall, our partners from the National Weather Service in Caribou, Maine put together and presented a River Ice training in three locations in our county.
This very good training covers a large number of topics, including the science behind ice formation, how to identify troublesome ice conditions, and some emergency response procedures. We strongly encourage anyone interested to take some time to view the training!
Once again, thank you to our partners at the National Weather Service for sharing their wealth of knowledge. Please, remember to stay safe this spring!
