U.S. Geological Survey Staff Practicing Checking Ice for Safety

Detailed Description

Safety is a major concern when it comes to working on ice, especially river ice. The New England Water Science Center conducted an ice safety day on January 31, 2022, at Lake Attitash in Merrimac, Massachusetts, for several new employees who work on ice. Experienced staff led the training and taught new staff how to check for ice safety, practice tossing throw ropes, and gain experience with some of the tools and equipment used to conduct discharge measurements under ice.
