DIAMOND LAKE, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Public Health Division has lifted the toxic algae advisory for Diamond Lake, the popular trout fishing lake in the Cascades north of Crater Lake National Park.

The agency said Tuesday that testing has confirmed reduced levels of blue-green algae that can produce toxins harmful to people and pets in and around the water.

Public health educator Bonnie Widerburg (WEE-der-burg) says there were 22 toxic algae advisories in Oregon last year, and so far this year there have been seven.
