From The Oregonian:

Officials warned residents in Salem, Turner and the surrounding areas to temporarily avoid drinking tap water after detecting low levels of toxins in the water supply.

Algae blooms caused cyanotoxins found last week in the Detroit Reservoir, which supplies water to the cities of Salem and Turner, as well as the Suburban East Salem Water District and Orchard Heights Water Association. The advisory should especially be heeded by young children, pets and anyone with poor health or weak immune systems, as well as anyone pregnant or nursing, according to the city of Salem.

City officials said the water is harmless to shower in, wash your hands or dishes as well as to clean or do laundry. Drinking the water could cause symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea. It can also lead to kidney and liver damage.

City and state health officials are monitoring the water. It is not immediately clear when the advisory will be lifted. Officials recommend bottled water as an alternative for drinking and cooking.
