Aeration System Running - Beware of Thin Ice

NOTICE: The aeration systems on Willmar & Foot Lakes in Willmar have been turned on & will cause open water & thin ice on the lake.

Aeration systems stir up the water, which keeps the oxygen levels up in the lake stable while the lake is frozen and helps prevent winter fish kill.

Be aware & stay clear of the areas marked where the system is in operation. County ordinance states people must stay outside of the thin ice signs.
