A portion of the Maumee River that flows through Toledo was placed under a recreational advisory on Thursday by the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department because of a strong algal bloom.

Health officials said city tap water remains safe.

“This is just an advisory,” Health Commissioner Eric Zgodzinski said.

Mr. Zgodzinski later added the decision was based on visual observations and not test results.
