How lucky are we to have some of the cleanest, safest, best-tasting water in the world, right here in our community?
On May 8, 2017, we're joining the American Water Works Association and water professionals across the country in kicking off Drinking Water Week with the theme, "Your Water—To Know it is to Love it."
While this week marks the official observance of National Drinking Water Week, many of us in Eugene, and especially here at EWEB, celebrate our drinking water all year long!
This week, we're making a special point of appreciating the pure, tasty, and healthy water we have the privilege to enjoy right from our taps, anytime day or night. We're very fortunate that the McKenzie River has excellent water quality, and we do our best to keep it that way.
We're raising our water glasses also to our Water Operations staff who construct, operate and maintain our water treatment, transmission, storage, pumping, and distribution systems. And of course to our staff and partners who help protect and conserve one of the community's most valuable resources—clean drinking water. Thank you for all that you do!
In keeping with this year's theme, "Your Water—To Know it is to Love it" here are some interesting facts about Eugene's drinking water:
You can find more information about water quality and reliability investments in our annual Drinking Water Report, which is available for download on our website and also was highlighted in the Spring 2017 Pipeline.
