City of Swift Current crews are busy installing flood protection devices along the Swift Current Creek in anticipation of higher water levels starting Sunday night and into Monday.
As tempting as it is to get an up close look at the ice which is impacting the Swift Current Creek, the Swift Current Fire Department has now declared the Creek Out of Bounds as a safety precaution.
Due to increased water flow and ice movement within the creek system, Swift Current Fire Department Chief Denis Pilon has determined that it is not safe for people to be near the creek.
Chief Pilon has declared the Swift Current Creek and all areas abutting the Creek that are covered with water as OUT OF BOUNDS. Persons going out on the ice or into the water will be charged under the Fire Bylaw.
