LAKE CHAPARRAL ICE RULES – Winter 2017-2018

 

These rules apply to all residents and their guests. Please ensure that everyone in your household and your guests using the lake facility are aware of these rules and follow all lake use regulations. If you are not aware of the lake use regulations, please ensure that you review them either at the lake office or on the Chaparral web site: http://lakechap.ca/ under the section “Member Rules”.

Lake Chaparral homeowners must be aware of the risks in using the lake facilities and should act accordingly.  As stated in the Member Rules, The Chaparral Residents’ Association considers all users of the lake facility, including members, their families and their guests, to be solely responsible for any loss, accidents or injuries to themselves or others as a result of use of the lake facilities. 

Ice Conditions

The Lake Staff will be closely monitoring the ice thickness and the condition of the ice during the winter season. Notwithstanding the on-going monitoring, natural ice can and does constantly change. Please ensure you are using appropriate care and caution when you are on lake.  If you wish more information on lake ice, ice safety and how lake ice can change, please visit the lake house and speak with one of the Lake Staff.

Please be advised that use of the lake and lake ice is forbidden while a “Red” warning flag is displayed.   While the “Red” flag is raised, no persons will be allowed use of the lake, open water or ice. This means that the lake staff has determined that the weather, lake or ice conditions are adverse and may pose significant risk to residents and their guests.

 

Beach / Waterfront / Ice Communication System

A Red or Green Flag will be flown from two flagpoles. The poles are located in two areas so that everyone around the lake can see them. One is located at the Centre dock area and the other at the beach playground.  The flags will give visual notice stating whether the waterfront (lake ice, beach, or open water) is considered open or closed.  Please ensure that you take the time to observe one of the flags prior to using the lake or ice.

“Red” flag – indicates the Lake or Ice is closed and not available for use.

“Green” flag – indicates the Lake or Ice is not closed - use at your own risk.

 

Unless a Red flag is being flown, Ice fishing may be allowed after the skating surface is closed.  Please report fish caught to the Lake Office.

  • All homeowners must respect the fishing rules and limits. Please notify the office of the number of fish caught and kept.
  • Dog owners are reminded that their pets are not allowed within the Lake, Park or on Lake Access boundaries.  This includes the common green space and all walkways as well as access from lake front homes.
  • Please ensure adequate supervision of all children using common docks, green spaces and access walkways.  Be advised for safety sake – no one is allowed to walk, bike, or skateboard on any access walkway retaining wall.  Please walk only on pathway down to dock area.
  • There is NO alcohol/liquor of any kind, glass or smoking of any kind permitted on the lake accesses and lake property.
