Warning Issued about Clear Lake Aerators


By Ben Hoppenworth

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have issued a warning about open water or thin ice near aerators being used at Clear Lake in northern Iowa.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that aerators are operating on the east shore near the water treatment plant and north shore near the pump station west of Venetian Village.

The Iowa Natural Resources Department says warning signs will be employed when the ice becomes safe enough for travel. Ice safety in the vicinity of the aerators will depend on the weather.

The aerators are being used to reduce chances of a winter fish kill.

Contact Scott Grummer, of the Iowa DNR, at 641-357-3517 for more information.
