The Riley-Purgatory-Bluff Creek Watershed District will be operating an aeration system on Rice Marsh Lake from December 1, 2020 until May 1st, 2021 that will result in open water. Anyone on the lake should be aware of the danger of open water and thin ice around the aeration system. This aeration system is necessary to prevent winter fish kill in the lake. The aeration system will be located in the southeast quadrant of the lake as shown on the map.
