Health Officials Warn Of Blue-Green Algae In Willamette River

(Portland, OR)  --  The Oregon Health Authority is warning residents about toxic blue-green algae in the Willamette River near Ross Island.  Officials say the algae located in the Ross Island lagoon and the Holgate Channel can make people and pets sick.  People should avoid swimming and high-speed water activities.  Boating is safe as long as speeds don't create a spray.
