If you have questions about extending electric or water facilities to your development, please contact us:

Water: email@example.com or 541-685-7377
We understand that your project may have many moving parts and it can be difficult to track details. This guide is designed to help you navigate EWEB's electric extension or modification process so that we can collaborate and efficiently manage your project to completion.
The first step in getting new electric or water service or changing or upgrading your current electric or water service is to apply for a building permit:
Once your building permit has been issued, complete our new service request form and a load info sheet for residential or commercial. If you are requesting electric temporary service, please review the applicable standards and procedures prior to the temporary service equipment construction.
Your project is entered into our design work queue after we receive a deposit payment, all necessary forms and any requested project information. We commit design resources and delivery schedule based on a first-come, first-served basis.
Requesting water service?
Please attach a backflow requirements letter to your new service request.
If you request a meter 1 1/2 inches and larger, you will receive a backflow requirements plans letter from a water engineering technician. After we have verified all of the information provided on your request, you will receive a call from one of our engineering technicians within two business days.
You may also call EWEB Buildings and Renovation at 541-685-7086 to request your new or temporary service.
An EWEB engineering technician will collaborate with you on project design and timeline, ensuring the project meets EWEB construction requirements and standards.
Once the design is completed, final payment is made and inspections are approved, your project will be scheduled with our construction crew.
Timing: Projects are prioritized by date received; you can have confidence we will not jump other projects ahead of yours.
Dedicated Engineering Technician: Your assigned Engineering Technician will see your project through from start to finish.
Regular Communication: This will help ensure your project progresses smoothly and can effectively manage things like changes in design or schedule.
To take full advantage of the process and avoid delays/additional costs to your project, please make sure that all steps are complete.
To keep the project queue focused and streamlined, projects will be canceled if there is no activity for six months.
