EWEB has been working for several years on water reliability projects to ensure safe, reliable water continues to flow in our community. In addition to programs aimed at protecting water at the source, we are renovating the Hayden Bridge Water Filtration Plant, investing in our existing infrastructure, including replacing water mains and improving water pump stations, and developing neighborhood emergency water stations.
EWEB, in partnership with Lane County, opened a new emergency water station at the Lane Events Center (Fairgrounds) on June 18, 2022.
Area neighbors were invited to the grand opening to see how the station works and learn about preparing for emergencies.
Just as your household invests in an emergency kit, EWEB is making investments to prepare, replace and maintain our community's water system.
We are working with community partners to develop an emergency water supply program that includes several permanent distribution sites located throughout the community using groundwater wells, as well as mobile water trailers. As of January 2021, five sites are operational:
Two additional sites are planned—near Churchill High School and near Roosevelt Middle School.
If disaster strikes our community's water system and you need to obtain water from one of these distribution sites, you will need to bring your own storage containers and disinfect the water before use. Get tips for storing and treating water.
