 Water for Morrow County

ODHS is working with Morrow County to provide bottled water for residents whose wells have tested high for nitrates. This is in response to an emergency declaration and request for aid by the county. 


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​How ODHS helps during emergencies

At the Oregon Department of Human Services, we work with partners across the state​ to help people in Oregon during emergencies. ​​​​​When an emergency happens, we can help you find food, shelter and meet other basic needs. This is our ​agency's role as part of Oregon's emergency management ​plan. The Office of Resilience and Emergency Management coordinates this work at ODHS.​​​
