It is with great sadness and sorrow that this report announces our first CoVID-19 passing. This disease is serious, dangerous and deadly, keep using face coverings, social distancing, wash hands often, stay away from sick people, avoid hot spots and if are ordered to ISOLATE or QUARANTINE, follow orders. Stay put, away from others until nurses say it’s okay to come out of your location.

The Boil Water Notice is still in effect for Warm Springs Agency area. For more information contact: The Branch of Public Utilities, Water and Wastewater division at (541)553-3246. Conservation of water is critical as repairs will take time; please continue to conserve water. The water available for the Agency community is still low.
