Grand Lake River Authority (GRDA) reports that recent water samples from Grand Lake show a “dramatic improvement in water conditions” and the “no bodily conduct” warning is now removed.

According to Justin Alberty, Corporate Communications Director, Grand River Dam Authority, the latest Grand Lake water samples, showing a significant decrease in blue green algae (BGA) toxicity, have prompted the Grand River Dam Authority to remove its “no bodily contact” warning for Grand Lake waters. Rather, the public is now simply encouraged to use caution in the water and avoid body contact with areas of visible BGA accumulations and “scum.” Meanwhile, GRDA continues to encourage the public to enjoy all activities in the Grand Lake area.
