Residential Pricing

2022 pricing

After five years of stable prices, rising costs of operations and the need to repair aging infrastructure required an increase in the price of water and electric services. The EWEB Board of Commissioners approved the final 2022 budget and prices at the Dec. 7, 2021 public meeting. New prices were effective Feb. 1, 2022.

In 2022, the average residential EWEB bill increased from $204 to $211 per month. This is based on using 9,000 gallons of water and 1,600 kWh of electricity; your bill change may be lower or higher depending on your actual usage.

The following are price changes for 2022 based on the Board's strategic and operational guidance, economic assumptions, and proposed capital investments.

Watershed Recovery Fee

In 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.
