Every day during the month of June twenty-eight tanker trucks of chemicals were applied to Grand Lake to fight the algae problem. The chemicals, aluminum sulfate (alum), and sodium aluminate, will bind up the phosphorus in the water and sediment and render it unusable by toxin producing algae. A $3.4 million Ohio EPA loan that will not need to be repaid is funding the project. HAB Aquatic Solutions of Nebraska is doing the work.
