Salem Continues Drinking Water System Improvements in 2020

The City of Salem is actively preparing for another algae season (May through September) in the North Santiam Watershed. Staff are closely monitoring water in Detroit Reservoir and the North Santiam River and are ready to respond with additional treatment if cyanotoxins are detected. In addition, the City is quickly moving forward on the construction of long-term improvements to drinking water treatment and backup water supplies that will ensure safe drinking water for Salem business and residents for years to come.
