Ice breaking starts in Port Bruce
Dave Reimer of Erie Draglines started breaking the ice near the mouth of Catfish Creek in Port Bruce on Tuesday afternoon, March 10. The drag line had been left in Port Bruce by the company in the days leading up to the ice breaking which was being done as a preventative measure before the spring thaw. The hope was that by breaking up the ice from just north of the steel wall and then south all the way out to the end of the creek that it would help move the flow of ice out into Lake Erie and avoid flooding in the village.
