Representatives from Algaeventure Systems, Marysville, made the first application of silica to a 2.5-acre test site in Grand Lake today. The test is to see if good, diatom algae can be made to grow and outcompete the lake's toxic blue-green algae. Three more applications of silica will be made this week and next, said company CEO Ross Youngs.
