Thanks to the work in the State of Oregon Legislature, our State Representative Daniel Bonham, State Senator Lynn Findley and Speaker of the House Tina Kotek for additional funding to help Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs’ water infrastructure crisis. The additional amount of $4.2 million has been added. The Warm Springs Tribes have been working tirelessly to once again have clean drinking water.

A serious reminder that if you are positive with the Corona Virus-19, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs tribal government expects you to be responsible and isolate yourself……if not Ordinance 101 will allow detention of those that do not comply with ordered isolation/quarantine.

The Boil Water Notice is still in effect for Warm Springs Agency area. The agency water needs to be tested for drink ability and hopefully by this Friday it could be cleared. For more information contact: The
