Water utility officials at the City of Corvallis are closely monitoring the status of chlorine supplies amid a regional shortage of the chemicals used in the treatment of drinking water and wastewater. The City’s municipal water supply is safe and secure, but the shortage is affecting communities throughout Oregon and Washington. Corvallis leaders are in communication with state and federal officials about the current supply of chlorine available to the community, as well as options to acquire more treatment chemicals. Community members can help by implementing voluntary conservation measures, including using water only for drinking, cooking and bathing, limiting outdoor use such as filling pools, washing cars or watering lawns, and identifying and fixing leaky faucets, pipes and fixtures.
