SALEM, OR -- The Oregon Health Authority has issued a health advisory for Detroit Lake, southeast of Salem, ahead of Memorial Day weekend. Water monitoring confirmed the presence of blue-green algae and the toxins they produce, which can be harmful to humans and animals.

 

People are encouraged to avoid swallowing lake water while swimming, or inhaling droplets during water skiing or power-boating. Officials warn campers and other visitors the toxins can’t be removed by boiling, filtering or treating the water with camping-style filters.
 
The advisory will be lifted once the concern is over. Click HERE for a list of algae bloom water advisories in Oregon.
