Aeration Warning Sign and Fencing on Lake

 

DANGER – unpredictable thin ice and deep water

Many Alberta lakes now have surface aerators running. Aerators substantially alter ice conditions: creating thin ice or open water. Our early spring temperatures make the ice even more unstable. Do not think you know the lake based on previous year’s experience. Danger signs are posted to protect you. 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. Lakes 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.

ACA Winter Lake Surface Aeration

ACA is operating aerators on the following lakes. Aerators create thin ice and open water. For your safety observe posted warnings and use at your own risk. Don’t go beyond danger signs, fenced areas, or approach open water. For inquiries or to report problems with aerator pumps, warning signs, or fence, please call: 780-410-1999.
