SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The city of Keizer is offering to share its drinking water with Salem-area residents who've been warned by officials to avoid consuming their tap water because of the discovery of low levels of algae toxin.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports three water stations with 24-hour access have been opened at Keizer City Hall in a parking lot.

City officials say the water source for Keizer, located next to Salem, is separate from the recent algae bloom from the Detroit Reservoir.

The advisory applies to Salem, Turner, Suburban East Salem Water District and Orchard Heights Water Association.

The city of Salem announced Tuesday that water testing last week found cyanotoxins and warned against children younger than 6, pets, anyone with poor health or immune systems, and others vulnerable people from drinking tap water.

It's not clear when the advisory will be lifted.
