What's Up?


Q: What's the plan to deal with the algae at Green Valley Park lakes? Seems kind of dangerous ... if a child fell in there, you wouldn't be able to see him.

A: "We treated the lakes with a copper-based product right before the Fourth of July. If you look at it now, most of the algae is gone. This year we had a lot of storm water run off because of the rain and that brought nutrients into the lake that we couldn't combat with the biological product we usually use."

Karen Probert, Water Quality Specialist, town of Payson

Q: Who paid for the full page "Open Letter to Gila County" that ran in the July 12 Roundup?

A: The town of Payson.
