The warm weather might cause things to get messy on Regina’s streets.
Rain and frigid temperatures have left a layer of ice over many of the city’s catch basins.
Ridges in the ice can also cause water to flow away from the basins, leaving it to pool on the streets.
Pat Wilson, director of waterworks for the City of Regina, said there are about 22,000 catch basins in the city, making it tough for crews to tend to all of them.
“Anything people can do to keep their catch basin clear so that the pooling water can clear off the street is very helpful,” Wilson said.
She noted that having water pool on top of ice can be very dangerous.
“Don’t trust what is under the water, make sure that everyone is being safe, we don’t want to see injuries out there.”
