Tanks containing liquid alum sit at the West Bank boat ramp Friday. The state-funded application of the chemical is part of a pilot study to prove whether alum can rid Grand Lake of toxic blue-green algae. Scott Fletcher, of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, said 25 to 30 tanks of alum would be needed to treat the entire lake if the state decides on that course of action.
