Some residents in the community are concerned it could cause flooding.
Carl Jorgenson, general manager of Conservation Sudbury believes a brief period of cold temperatures coupled with strong winds may have caused the pile-up of ice in the shallow area of the river.
"There are several places where the water is either going over top of the build up of ice or in between spaces that have been created," he said.
