The Owens River has been added to a list of rivers in the state that are now under an health advisory suggesting limiting some species of fish due to possible contamination of the fish. 

State issues advisory: limit amount of fish you eat from these local rivers

Two Eastern Sierra rivers, the Owens and the East Walker, are on a list of waters with enough mercury and other toxins found in some fish to trigger a warning, the state said this week. The two rivers have been added to this list for the first time ever.
