Ice structure at Bay View home taken down by public works crew

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A 30-foot tall ice structure at a home in Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood was taken down by a DPW crew on Wednesday morning, February 12th.

The structure was built by David Schardt over a period of weeks when the bitter cold air had settled into southeast Wisconsin. Schardt is a builder by trade, who built the glacial structure next to his home using a pole, a garden hose and a piece of string. It took just a few weeks for the structure to reach its 30-foot height -- and catch the city’s attention.
