EUGENE, Ore — The Eugene Water & Electric Board will host an informational meeting Tuesday to discuss changes at the College Hill Reservoir.
This past year, EWEB discovered that the reservoir roof is prone to leaking despite numerous efforts to waterproof the surface. The leaks increase the risk of contaminants entering the drinking water below, particularly during rain events.
The meeting is an opportunity to learn about the problem, what’s being done to reduce this risk in the near term and to discuss additional measures to safeguard our water supply.
The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at the United Lutheran Church at 2230 Washington St.
