DNR issues ice warning for aerated lakes The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) warns ice anglers, snowmobilers, skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts to use cau- tion when going onto any lake cov- ered or partially covered with ice, especially those that feature aeration systems. "Open water areas created by aera- tion systems can shift or change shapes depending on weather condi- tions," said Marilyn Danks, DNR aquatic biologist. "Leaks may develop in air lines creating other areas of weak ice or open water." About 285 Minnesota lakes will have aeration systems operating this winter. Private hatchery operators also use aeration systems, usually on small lakes without public accesses. Aeration systems generally operate from the time lakes freeze until ice break-up in the spring. They help pre- vent winterkill of fish, but they also create areas of open water and thin ice, which are significant hazards. Both "Thin Ice" and Warning" signs are used to identify aerated lakes. The person who applies for a permit is required to maintain "Warning" signs at all commonly used access points to the lake. This sign warns people approaching the lake that an aeration system is in oper- ation and to use extreme caution. "Thin Ice" signs are used to mark the perimeter of the thin ice and open water area. These signs are diamond shaped with an orange border and white background with the warning "Thin Ice" in bold print. It is the per- mittee's responsibility to post and maintain "Thin Ice" signs at 100-foot intervals. Some municipalities may have ordinances which prohibit enter- ing into the marked area and/or pro- hibit the night use of motorized vehi- cles on lakes with aeration systems in operation. These local regulations are often posted at accesses where they apply. Aeration systems are inspected for safety and compliance with regula- tions by permittees and DNR person- nel.

DNR question of the week Question: Now is the time of year when animals start looking for winter shelter. What is the best way to keep bats out of my house? Answer: The first step in excluding bats is to locate the entry points to your house. Bats can enter through holes as small as three-quarter inches, the diameter of a dime. Typical entry points include chimneys, louver fans, air intakes, exhaust vents, openings around plumbing, power or cable lines, spaces around doors and win- dows, and where exterior siding has shrank, warped or loosened. Close inspection during the day will help determine the exact location of these entry points. Caulk, weatherstripping, insulation materials, screening, steel wool, or even duct tape can be used to close these and other entry points. Efforts to bat-proof your home will also often improve its energy efficien- cy. Another good way to keep bats out of the interior of your home is to make sure doors to attics and basements are well sealed, and that dampers are kept closed when the chimney is not in use.
