A health advisory prompted by high algae levels found in Diamond Lake was lifted last week by Oregon Public Health and Jackson County Health Department officials. The advisory went into effect July 15.
Oregon Public Health advises people who recreate in Oregon water bodies to always be alert to signs of algae blooms. People and their pets should avoid water contact if there are visible clumps of algae in the water.
