CULVER, OR -- The Oregon Health Authority has lifted the advisory issued last month for Lake Billy Chinook, in Jefferson County.  New water samples show the level of harmful algae toxins are back below recreational guidelines for human exposure. 

 

Local businesses had complained the health advisory was keeping visitors away and cutting into their bottom line, even though the water appeared clean. The OHA says dangerous toxins can be present even in clear water.
