Salem’s Drinking Water

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 8:00pm, Taproot Lounge and Cafe This is a free event with donation suggested. No registration required.

What steps are being taken to safeguard Salem’s drinking water after last summer’s drinking water advisory for vulnerable populations? What is known about the causes of algal blooms in the North Santiam watershed that produce cyanotoxins? How do the new drinking water rules from the Oregon Health Authority address cyanotoxins?

Work in Salem focuses on three areas—improving drinking water treatment today, installing new treatment to keep drinking water safe in the future, and making sure equipment, partnerships, and volunteers are in place to get water more quickly to the community – if needed.

Salem Environmental Education invites you to learn more about the City’s long-term solution for removing cyanotoxins and about what is being done now in case another season of high algae levels in the watershed produce harmful cyanotoxins.
