POWER AUTHORITY SET TO REMOVE ICE BOOM

New York Power Authority crews are expected to begin removing the Niagara River Ice Boom today.

Despite the weekend's wintry blast, ice cover on Lake Erie has shrunk from 560 square miles as of March 29 to 80 square miles of ice on Monday. Under guidelines for the protective boom, it must be removed by April 1, unless the ice pack exceeds 250 square miles.

It's expected that removal of the boom's 22 sections will take two to three days to complete.
