SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Business owners around Detroit Lake say summer tourism is business as usual despite several water advisories issued in the area in recent months.

Detroit businesses say they have seen only slight drops in sales.

Many of the campgrounds and motels in the area have still been full for major holidays such as Fourth of July.

The Statesman Journal reports the steady flow of visitors may be due to people being unaware of the current water advisory that has been in place since June 28 rather than people ignoring the advisories.

When the first advisories warning visitors the toxic algae blooms at the lake and the North Santiam River were issued in May, businesses saw an immediate drop in sales and many customers cancelled their reservations.
