With water showing between shore and fishing huts off Norglenwold, volunteers involved with the Take It Off campaign are concerned it may not be possible very soon to get the huts off before ice starts melting. On Tuesday there were still 10 huts of various styles and values sitting on the ice in that area.
Fishing season ends Mar. 31 and huts must be removed by then, but warm weather of recent days is causing anxious glances towards the lake by Beverly Anderson, Norglenwold councillor and one of the campaign’s organizers.
If the huts aren’t removed and fall through the ice, they could be dangerous to boaters and swimmers. There’s also a worry about pollution from what’s left in the huts.
‘It’s getting less and less safe for people to go out on the lake,” said Anderson.
