State money to fight algae at Grand Lake St. Marys : EPA's $5 million will buy aluminum sulfate

Excerpt from The Columbus Dispatch.

The state will spend $5 million on an effort to keep toxic blue-green algae from ruining another summer at Grand Lake St. Marys. The money will be used to buy aluminum sulfate, a chemical that binds with phosphorus in water before algae can use it as food.

Although $5 million is not enough to treat the entire 13,000-acre lake, officials with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources hope it will be effective if used in "strategic locations."

The money will come from a pot of federal dollars that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency uses to hand out low-interest and zero-interest loans for water- and sewer-improvement projects.

The Goal is to Remove as Much Phosphorous from the Lake as Possible - It’s a familiar sight to residents living on the shores of Kitsap Lake: each summer, around the beginning of June, a bright green algae begins to creep across the water. But this year an aquatic weed harvester is being used to remove the underwater weeds and the algae feeding phosphorous those plants contain.
