Drinking Water Advisory Tool | Regional Water Providers Consortium

Drinking Water Advisory Tool

The Drinking Water Advisory Tool was developed to alert customers of Consortium members if there are emergency alerts in effect for their drinking water.


Drinking Water Advisories

Sometimes there are temporary issues with water supply or quality. When this happens, water providers may use the tool to issue an advisory to people in the affected area. Each advisory will include information on what it is and what you need to do. Common types of drinking water advisories include:

  • Boil Water Notice (BWN)
  • Curtailment (voluntary or mandatory)
  • Do Not Drink
  • Do Not Use
  • Service Outage


Statewide Drinking Water Advisories

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) manages this map of active drinking water advisories across the State of Oregon. The Consortium did not create and does not maintain this map, meaning we cannot answer questions regarding Do Not Drink and Boil Water advisories for water providers that are not members.

Water Provider Look-Up

The tool has a second function as a water provider look-up tool. This lookup tool only works for customers whose water providers are members of the Regional Water Providers Consortium.
