Please Stay Off The Ice

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Red Rock are warning visitors to stay off the ice. Ice conditions are unstable due to rising lake levels, fluctuating temperatures, and rain and snow. Ice on reservoirs is extra dangerous due to the water constantly moving beneath the ice’s surface, and the reservoir’s water level also fluctuates daily causing the ice to weaken. Please use extreme caution along the shoreline and do not go out onto the ice. [Read More]
