The use of bubbler/aerators in winter is not recommended by the CBCA. If a member chooses to use these devices the member should follow these rules.


Bubbler/aerators when used during the winter months should be used with caution.

Bubblers should not be operated when the temperature is above 28 degrees.


Bubblers should be run, only long enough to clear the ice away from an area not to exceed

10’ beyond the dock or boat lift.


Ice should be allowed to reform to approximately ½ inch before the bubbler is reactivated.


Bubblers should be monitored and managed effectively.


Extreme caution should be used by anyone who goes on the ice, in any part of the lake

at all times.
