Ice Safety and Drinking Water Protection

Windsor Lake Water Supply during Winter

Hazardous ice conditions can be created within the City’s designated water supplies due to changing levels and flows under the ice.  For your safety, please do not walk across the ice at Bay Bulls Big Pond, Windsor Lake and Petty Harbour Long Pond.

Protect Your Drinking Water
While residents are encouraged to enjoy the trails around watershed for walking and hiking, the following uses are not permitted:

  • Ice Fishing
  • Wood cutting
  • Fires
  • Operating motorized equipment, such as snowmobiles and ATVs

It is also important that pet owners pick up after their animals and ensure their pet is on a leash.

Appropriate use of the watershed will protect the integrity of the water supply; we are asking the public to respect the area, and to report any misuse by immediately calling Access St. John’s at 311 or 754-CITY (2489).
