State warns of algae contamination near Heppner

PORTLAND — The discovery of blue-green algae in an Eastern Oregon reservoir has the Oregon Health Authority worried that drinking water near Heppner could be contaminated.


The advisory on Tuesday came after the algae discovery in the Willow Creek Reservoir. The algae produces cyanotoxin, which is harmful to humans and pets.

Most discoveries of the toxin take place in Southern Oregon.

The health authority asked those who draw their drinking water from the reservoir to find an alternate source, and says private treatment systems aren't capable of removing algae toxins.

Exposure to the toxins can produce symptoms of numbness, tingling and dizziness. The toxins can also lead to difficulty breathing or heart problems.
