Aerators Installed on Area Lakes
December 14, 2021
Three Rivers Park District is operating aeration systems this winter in Lake Rebecca, Cleary Lake, Murphy Lake and Hyland Lake. The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is operating aeration systems in North Lundsten Lake, South Lundsten Lake and Mud Lake (adjacent to Carver Park Reserve). Aeration will continue until ice off conditions in 2022.
Operation of the aeration systems may result in unsafe ice conditions on portions of the lakes for the duration of the winter. Anyone using the lakes should be aware of the danger of open water or thin ice. The aeration systems are used to keep fish alive by assuring they receive sufficient oxygen.

Hyland Lake Park Reserve is located at 8737 East Bush Lake Road, Bloomington. Lake Rebecca Park Reserve is located at 9831 County Road 50, Rockford.
