Residential Pricing


2021 pricing

Customers in 2021 will once again see the results of our Affordability Initiative as the Board of Commissioners approved a 2021 budget that includes no increase in residential electric or water prices. This follows a 4.5 percent decrease in water prices in 2018, and is the sixth time in seven years without an increase in residential electric prices.

Watershed Recovery Fee

In early 2021, EWEB Commissioners approved a new program that will pay for wildfire restoration projects in the McKenzie watershed through a temporary flat fee assessed to customer water bills. 

The community-funded watershed recovery and restoration initiative will supplement EWEB's McKenzie River Source Protection Program to safeguard drinking water for Eugene residents. Working with McKenzie River Trust, McKenzie Watershed Council, and other Pure Water Partners, we are addressing immediate risks such as erosion from high burn areas and redevelopment along the river, as well as longer-term resiliency investments to restore floodplain areas that are critical to water quality and habitat. The Watershed Recovery Fee is effective July 2021 and will be in place for 60 months (5 years), at which time it will automatically sunset.

For most residential and business customers, the fee is a flat $3 per month (based on a 1-inch or smaller water meter). Some customers, such as large businesses and those with extensive irrigation needs, pay more ($4.50 to $30 per month) based on meter size.
