DANGER – THIN ICE
Surface aerators across lakes in the province are up and running. Do not go beyond danger signs or approach the open water as the aerators create thin ice and open water. Enter onto ice at your own risk.
ACA Aerated Lakes
Why do we aerate lakes?
ACA aerates lakes so that we can help create, maintain, and enhance recreational angling opportunities for Albertans by promoting the year-round survival of trout in stocked waterbodies. Ponds that are typically shallow, eutrophic and experience prolonged ice and snow cover are prone to fish kills. The Aeration Program creates more angling opportunities and a better quality of fish.
