Water safety after fire

Residents may be concerned about the wildfire causing toxins to appear in drinking water. The Medford Water Commission (MWC) supplies water to most of areas affected by the fire.  The MWC website provides water safety test results and information about toxins that can appear in water like volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  MWC also monitors the watershed that is the source of our water. 

Oregon State DEQ governs the safety of private wells.
