Our community is investing in water

Just as your household invests in an emergency kit, EWEB is making investments to prepare, replace and maintain our community's water system.

  • EWEB is examining the feasibility of a new water-filtration plant so that our community will be able to produce drinking water on both sides of the Willamette River.

  • We are investing in modern tools to isolate damage and quickly restore water service.

  • We are committed to regular maintenance so our community's water system stays in excellent shape.

1 or 2 day supply
A few things to know about your water’s reliability

Limited supply: EWEB has enough storage to provide only one or two days of drinking water if something happens to our McKenzie River source.

Community risk: A reliable supply of clean water is vital to public health, safety and our economy, especially in an emergency. 

System resilience: EWEB's strategy to replace and renew our water system will increase resilience now, and for future generations.

Invest in reliability: Our biggest investment will be a new drinking water source and filtration plant on the Willamette River.

Affordable: Careful planning will balance water reliability and affordability, which are both important community values.
