As an avid adventurer and user of the natural resources common to our public lands, I am appalled by the threat posed by the failure of the U.S. Forest Service and the Oregon Health Authorities to adequately warn visitors to our public lands about the danger of Blue/Green Algae contamination commonly found in Oregon's State Waters. The threat was revealed when both agencies fail to report contaminate waters accurately. In Addition the link to the Oregon Health Authority fails to work. The result of the failures places visitors to the contaminated Oregon State Waters.
