Aerators in Lake Prince and Western Branch IP: 18.104.22.168 Posted on October 21, 2016 at 02:25:08 PM by Reservoir Manager
For those of you that regularly fish Lake Prince and Western Branch Reservoir, you know we have large aerators in both lakes. We just had 12 of them replaced with a new model and normally they are very visible. However, this model is made to submerge below the surface when the air is turned off during the winter and during storm events.
The air was turned off today and the units are beginning to sink. They are below the surface and the warning buoys are still in place, but please be cautious. They aerators will continue to sink and should be about 5 feet below the surface at max depth.
Please pass this on to others that may not use this message board!
