  • People with compromised immune systems or pre-existing liver conditions
  • People receiving dialysis treatment, or other sensitive populations
  • Pregnant women or nursing mothers
  • The elderly and other sensitive populations (as a precautionary measure)
  • Pets

To ensure that safe drinking water is available to those in need, the City of Salem will continue to partner with other water utilities, county and State of Oregon public health/emergency response agencies, and private entities to provide drinking water to those in need.
