EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene Water and Electric Board says its water is safe to drink and properly filtered amid concerns over the water quality due to the recent fires. 

There have been reports of a chlorine odor and an "ashy" taste coming from people's faucets once the Holiday Farm Fire broke out on Monday. EWEB says it has been monitoring its filtration processes and working on the issue, but the water does meet or exceed state and federal health standards. 

EWEB also says it will take time to check its power substations and filtration plants on Highway 126 for damage, once emergency personnel allows it to do so.
