August Update on Salem’s Drinking Water


Test data shows that the Salem's water treatment system is reliably protecting our drinking water.

​Salem's drinking water remains clean and safe to drink thanks to updates to water treatment equipment and processes made over the past year. Test data shows that the treatment system continues to reliably remove cyanotoxins from our drinking water. 

The City is also working with the U.S. Geological Survey to activate two additional water monitoring stations. The two new stations will provide additional water quality data for the City's water monitoring program. 

If a drinking water emergency happens, the City will inform the public through its Community Alert System, notice to the media, the City's Facebook and Twitter accounts, and on a webpage dedicated to drinking water information.
