A health advisory was issued today for Detroit Lake. Water monitoring has confirmed the presence of blue-green algae and the toxins they produce in Detroit Lake. These toxin concentrations can be harmful to humans and animals. People should avoid swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities, such as water skiing or power boating, in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, people who have skin sensitivities may experience a puffy red rash at the affected area. To learn if an advisory has been issued or lifted for a specific water body, visit the Harmful Algae Blooms website at http://www.healthoregon.org/hab and select “algae bloom advisories,” or call the Oregon Public Health Division toll-free information line at 877-290-6767.
The Mongold main ramps and docks are now open for the season. The winter low water ramp is now closed. Please visit http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Water.aspx to view current lake levels at Detroit Lake Reservoir and other reservoirs in the Willamette Valley.
