CINCINNATI — The continued presence of harmful algal blooms has forced cancellation of this year's Great Ohio River Swim from the Ohio side to the Kentucky side and back.

Organizers earlier rescheduled what would have been the 8th annual river swim for this Saturday because of the blooms. But event chairman Brewster Rhoads says health advisories issued last month by the Cincinnati and Kentucky authorities are still in effect, and swimmer safety is top priority.

He says those who registered will have their registrations honored for next year's event, set for Sept. 25.
