The decision to shut down the tribal government was a difficult one but the risks are getting higher. Stay at Home, Stay Safe, are very effective ways to slow the spread of the Corona Virus-19. It is more effective if done with wearing face coverings in public, washing hands often, avoiding crowds, stay away from hot spots, stay home if sick, stay away from sick people……We are all in this together so please do your part at home.

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.
