As Ice Thickens, DNR Issues Warnings

UNDATED — Colder temps means more ice forming on lakes, rivers and streams.

But, DNR Water Safety Specialist Tim Smalley says give it another week or two before going out on the ice.

Smalley says they have reports of ice anywhere from 8 inches down to a quarter inch. And, he says sometimes those conditions can change in a matter of only a few yards of one another.

Smalley says if you must get out on the ice, make sure to bring along picks to help pull yourself out in case you break through.

He also says as conditions improve, make sure not to park vehicles too close to one another.

The Army Corp of Engineers recommends they be parked 100 feet apart.
