After the Fire | Water Safety Information for Echo Mountain Complex Area

Do not drink, prepare food or wash with tap water until officials say the water source is safe. Contact your water provider or check their website for up-to-date information. Use bottled water until you hear differently from your water system operator.

The delay in more information is due to needing to test the water for volatile organic compounds (VOC).  These occur when plastic piping heats up to a high degree. At this higher temperature, the pipes can release benzenes or other harmful chemicals or gases.

Property Status Checks | Media Release - 9.13.20 - Lincoln County, OR (6 PM)

Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers announced that deputies will begin offering status checks on properties in the area that remains closed to the Echo Mountain Complex Fire. General access to the affected areas continues to be limited due to hazardous and unpredictable conditions.

Residents can phone the county’s call center, 541-265-0621, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. seven days a week. Callers will be asked to provide the following information:

Name
Address (any helpful information in locating the residence- many street signs and address markers are destroyed).
Phone number
Anyone missing from the location, including name, age, phone number
Any animals at location

Requests can also be made by filling out this form online: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeOqMTuyaT5CqPM73MW0pwyJhuIz83wC7-tMpM8M05JINoBKQ/viewform

Deputies will make checks as time permits, and there may be long delays in callbacks. Deputies will only be able to provide basic information about a structure or damage and are not capable of determining if a structure is safe to enter or is habitable.  Deputies will call the number provided and relay the status to the resident.  If there is no answer, the deputies will leave a message.  If the phone has no voicemail box or the deputy is otherwise unable to leave a message, no further attempts will be made.

Sheriff Landers said: “We understand the anxiety of not knowing the condition of your property and want to get you answers as soon as we safely can.”
