Health advisory issued for Howard Bay - Details

If you’re looking to take a dip this weekend, you may want to think twice about jumping into Howard Bay in Upper Klamath Lake.

Officials found toxic blue-green algae in the area, located in the southwest corner of the lake.

The algae can harm both pets and people. The public should avoid drinking or swallowing the water during swimming and other water activities. Pets should also be kept away from that section of the lake. The toxins cannot be killed by boiling.

Other sections of the lake did not show high algae contamination.
