It is no secret that the abnormally mild winter and warm spring caused a lot of early blooms including the pesky blue green algae on many lakes around the state.
Officials with the Grand Lake Restoration Commission weren't too concerned when March water tests showed a mild bloom. Why? Because they knew they had an alum treatment coming and results from last year showed that the treatments would reduce the early bloom.
14 lakes around the state including Grand Lake will have what Milt Miller with the commission calls "informative decision" signs posted by Memorial Day weekend.
These signs will list safety levels of algae for seniors, babies and those with immune deficiencies.
