- Water has been restored to Tribal buildings, businesses and residents served by the South East reservoir.
- Water outages in West Hills will continue through Monday.
- The Greeley Heights reservoir has less than 12 hours of reserves with continued conservation efforts. When reserves are depleted, this area will be out of water through Monday.
- Shitike Creek Road residents and the Shaker Church will be be out of water through Tuesday due to additional work that needs to be done on the 8″ water line.
Drinking and grey water is available at the Old Elementary School on Campus. Showers are also available at that site.
Because of the 14 inch water main break in the Shitike Creek, the Warm Springs Tribes issued an Emergency Declaration on Friday May 31, 2019. They have implemented their Emergency Operation Plan to coordinate repairs and provide services to the public.
When a total water outage occurs affected residents should turn off your water heater. Any time water is not running for more than 24 hours, it is best to turn off your electric water heater by going to your circuit breaker box and throwing the breaker marked “water heater” to the “off” position. This keeps the element from burning out or overheating due to lack of water.
A Reservation Wide BURN BAN is in effect for Warm Springs due to dry fuel conditions and lack of water for fire suppression, it is critical we all take precautions to keep the community safe. The Burn Ban is for all outside burning including camp fires and any ‘hot work” that involves heat, sparks or flame. Fireworks are prohibited as well.
