BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Environmental officials are asking the owners of lakefront camps to close up for the season in ways that will help protect Vermont’s lakes.

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is asking people with docks to pass on bubblers and de-icers this year.

DEC officials say de-icers, which keep the water around docks from freezing, pose a hazard to people skating and ice fishing, as well as interrupting wildlife life cycles.

The DEC recommends removing docks or letting them freeze in place.
