Health Advisory for Part of Lake Billy Chinook

CULVER, OR -- A health advisory remains in affect for the Metolius arm of Lake Billy Chinook, from Perry South Campground to, and including, the area around Three Rivers Marina.

 

State health officials confirm the presence of blue-green algae, which can produce toxin concentrations harmful to humans and animals. They recommend not drinking water from the Metolius arm, and avoid inhaling water droplets during activities like water skiing. 

 
The area around Cove Palisades State Park is not impacted by the algae bloom. For more information on this and other algae bloom advisories, visit the Oregon Health Authority's website. Click HERE for a map of all current algae advisories.
