DNR issues ice warning for aerated lakes The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources warns ice anglers, snowmobilers, skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts to use caution when going onto any lake covered or partially covered with ice, especially those that feature aeration systems. "Open water areas created by aeration systems can shift or change shapes depending on weather conditions," said Mari- lyn Danks, DNR aquatic biologist "Leaks may develop in air lines creating other areas of weak ice or open water." Aeration systems are gener- ally operated from the time lakes freeze until the ice breaks up in the spring. They help prevent win- terkill of fish, but they also create areas of open water and thin ice, which are significant hazards. Aeration systems are inspected for safety and compliance with regulations by permittees and DNR personnel. For more infor- mation, call a regional fisheries office or the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157, or toll- free (888) 646-6367, info.dnr@ state, mn. us. The following is a list of the lakes in Meeker, Stearns, and Wright Counties that will likely have aeration systems in opera- tion this winter. When there are lakes in the county with the sarhe name as the aerated lake, the nearest town is shown in brackets. Names in parentheses are alternate lake names. Those names followed by an asterisk are newly aerated lakes. Meeker Co.: Star, Thompson. Stearns Co.: Black Oak, Carne- lian, Marie (Maria) [Kimball].
