2015 ICE-OUT was mid-morning, Saturday, April 11
With the ice disappearing Saturday morning everyone will start thinking about docks and boatlifts. Along with the lifts and docks you should consider putting a Zebra Mussel monitoring device on either your lift or dock.
Take a scrap piece of PVC pipe, maybe a foot or two in length, and cap one end of the pipe. Attach the capped pipe to your dock or lift however you choose but make certain the pipe is submerged, about a foot or so off the bottom of the lake, preferably in the shade, so the Zebra Mussels can find their way into the pipe. Inspect the pipe on a regular basis and report anything you think could possibly Zebra Mussels to the DNR.
The Big Chippewa Lake Association board will be meeting early in May in preparation for the annual Board meeting on June 6.
