Register for SPLASH

The City of Salem has an online portal for licenses and permits. The portal is known as SPLASH (Salem Permit, License, and Application Services Home). You must register to use the system.

How to register

SPLASH registration creates an email address and password combination which allows you to login to the system.

The email addresses listed on each permit application determine which permits appear when you login. If [email protected] has a registration but does not include her email address with permit #12345, she can login to SPLASH, but will not see permit #12345.

The connection between registrations and permit numbers uses a full email address. If you have five email addresses from your company who need to work with permits, all five email addresses must have a SPLASH registration and must be included on each permit application. Some companies choose to use a generic email address, such as [email protected], for the SPLASH registration and then list only the company name on the applications. The company gives whoever needs to use SPLASH the generic email address and its associated password.

Request a registration

To start the registration process:

  1. Open the SPLASH registration page in a web browser.
  2. Fill in the form information and select the [Submit] button.

Once you complete the registration process, it can take up to 48 hours for staff to complete the process. You will receive an email with a temporary password. When you receive your temporary password, please login to SPLASH and change your password by clicking the Manage My Account link.
