GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks officials are warning residents of potential weakened ice on the Red River near the city’s water treatment lagoon.

Officials say the city will be discharging treated wastewater from its lagoon system throughout the winter. The discharge may create weakened ice or open water near the discharge point.

Officials are advising residents to stay away from the site, which is near 54th Avenue North. City workers have placed warning signs on the river bank - upstream and downstream - near the site.
