Ensuring a Safe, Resilient Water Supply System for Generations

Click here to start receiving news and updates on EWEB's Water Storage Improvement projects.

Access to clean water is vital to our community. EWEB is hard at work making sure safe, reliable water continues to flow even as critical infrastructure ages and new challenges arise.

In the next decade, we plan to construct new water storage facilities near 40th Ave. and Donald St. and replace the water storage systems at EWEB's College Hill and Hawkins Hill sites. The projects will be built to seismic and contemporary operating standards, providing more than 40 million gallons of resilient, safe water storage.

These are once-in-a-lifetime improvements that will provide safe drinking water to generations of Eugene residents.

While a safe, resilient water system benefits all customers, facility construction will have direct impacts on surrounding neighbors. As a public utility, we are committed to careful planning, responsible use of public funds, and meaningful customer engagement. This page will be updated throughout the course of the projects and will include information about how you can stay informed and involved.
