From the DLWID Office:
No Hazardous Algae Bloom Advisory. Toxin monitoring was completed at all sites, and while visual indications show heavy to moderate concentrations of blue-green algae nearly throughout the lake, all the toxin monitoring for Microcystin were well below the 10 ppb recreational standard and most even below the drinking water standard of 1 ppb.
However, please note that other toxins may be present, and that conditions can intensify rapidly. Please also note that dogs and other animals are especially susceptible and thus the State of Oregon has created a provisional guideline of 0.2 ppb of Microcystin for dogs. Keep children and pets safe, and always look before you leap.
E.coli: Advisories are not issued for E.coli, but are provided for guidance on water quality through the recreational season.
Secchi Depth (Clarity): Poor.
Secchi Depth ranging between 1′ – 5′.
Lake Level: 8.94′
