March 7 Board Meeting report
The EWEB Board of Commissioners meet on the first Tuesday of the month.
To maintain the reliability customers have come to know and trust, EWEB must address an aging infrastructure bubble.
Eugene is one of the largest cities on the west coast with only a single source of drinking water, the McKenzie River. And though the McKenzie is a pure, reliable water source, EWEB will secure a second source ensure resiliency in the future, planning to build a water treatment plant on the Willamette River, upstream of Eugene and Springfield.
For the past year, EWEB’s electric division has been preparing for a complete reconstruction of the Currin substation. Quite simply, it’s reached the end of its useful life.
