Residents of Toledo are asked to conserve water for the next day or so to allow the town’s water treatment plant more time to process water they’re taking out of the Siletz River. The Siletz is running fast, big and muddy, so it’s taking a bit more time for the water plant to produce high quality drinking water.
Just FYI, Toledo Public Works Director Adam Denlinger says it is ALWAYS good to have at least TWO GALLONS of drinking water for EACH PERSON in the family PER DAY. Water interruptions usually last for less than a day, but occasionally they can hit two or three days. The Salmon Run Apartments in Newport are in their second day without water while crews fix their water main and pump station just down the hill off NE 71st.
