Lake Ice At Lake Shelbyville Not Always Safe For Winter Activities

Winter is here and many are getting outside and enjoying activities such as ice fishing. The Army Corp of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville is reminding visitors to the lake that due to the fluxuating levels of the water at the lake during the lake's winter draw down, the ice on the lake may not be as solid as it looks.
 
Ashely Florey is with the Army Corp of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville, and says the winter draw down causes large differences in lake levels that has an impact on the thickness of the lake ice.
 
 
Florey reminds visitors that it can be difficult to judge what ice on the lake is safe to be on.
 
 
Florey appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios.
