Salem and areas surrounding the Willamette River may begin to see high water levels for this time of year. Low-laying trails and park areas along the Willamette River may be impacted as water levels increase over the next few days.
Those who use Minto-Brown Island Park, Wallace Marine Park, and other low-lying areas near the Willamette should use caution. Salem’s smaller streams and creeks are forecasted to rise, particularly if thunderstorms hit our area; potentially causing localized areas of high water. This threat will exist through Monday, May 9, 2022.
