ST. MARYS - A group of scientists has begun testing another technique to clean up the water in the experimental Grand Lake St. Marys State Park West Beach area.
Officials from the Wright State University-Lake Campus, the Lake Restoration Commission and Ohio State University placed four floating wetlands in the water to see if they can remove the nutrients that feed the harmful algae. Professor Stephen Jacquemin and a graduate student placed the floating wetlands in the beach area on Tuesday. [More]
