Prince George, B.C. – There has been little change in the ice build up situation on the Nechako River.
An update from the City of Prince George says the “River conditions remain stable with water levels continuing to drop”.
The length of stationary ice remains unchanged at 12 kms up stream from the confluence with the Fraser River.
The City of Prince George is maintaining its Level One Emergency Operations Centre, and regular monitoring of the river continues.
must be terrified to be hosed down by a firetruck again.
I want the ambe-dex ( whatever it was called). Not sure it actually did anything last time..but looked funky…lol
It was called the Amphibex. They pulled it out of the river on Jan 9th 2008 and sent it back to Quebec. They then used warm water from the pulp mill to try and break up the ice.
The Amphibex did not work, however they left the impression that it did. I think what happened is that when they actually broke up some ice the water came rushing through and almost swamped the machine. In other words it was too dangerous to try this system on a fast moving river.
Beautiful picture, thank you!
