Boat traffic on Grand Lake is at a standstill due to water quality advisories related to weeks of algae blooms. The strongest state advisory was issued last week and tells people to stay out of the water, no boating or swimming, and to not eat the fish. Boats are tied up at docks along West Bank Road this morning.
