    Wildfire, Water and Salem:

    What’s Coming Downstream?

    Zoom Webinar


    Members Free, Non-Members $5

    We are all well aware of what extreme wildfires are doing to our homes, forests and air quality. What’s less clear is how wildfires pollute and alter the water coming out of our watersheds. Join us to hear both what engineers have learned about this problem and what Salem is doing to protect the water we drink.

    This program is proudly sponsored by the North Santiam Water Council.
