GRANBY — Ice on local lakes is almost completely melted and should be all gone within the next few days, according to Marty Schroeder of the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District.

The ice melt is a week or so behind when ice normally melts off of the area's reservoirs due to colder temperatures during the beginning of May and late April, according to Noble Underbrink, Northern's collection systems manager at the Farr Pump Plant on Lake Granby. The historical average date that ice is off of the area's lakes and reservoirs is April 30, according to Underbrink.
