Detroit Lake Health Advisory Lifted

SALEM, OR -- State health officials have lifted an advisory at Detroit Lake, just in time for Memorial Day weekend visitors. New testing revealed the level of blue-green algae and associated toxins have fallen below dangerous levels for humans.


The Oregon Health Authority encourages visitors to continue to be cautious with pets, since toxins are still at levels that may not be safe for dogs.
Experts say people and pets should avoid contact with water that is foamy, scummy, thick like paint, pea-green, blue-green or brownish red in color, or if a thick mat of algae is visible in the water.
