2019 Annual Report
We are committed to protect our community's health and the environment by providing high-quality wastewater services to the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area in partnership with Eugene, Springfield, and Lane County.
The MWMC regularly implements community education through events, presentations and plant tours. Additionally, we offer our annual Clean Water University to all 5th grade students in the Bethel, Eugene and Springfield School Districts. Each year hundreds of students attend this event to learn about their local storm water, drinking water and wastewater systems.
We strive to achieve and maintain the best environmental standards in our daily work as we responsibly manage the region's wastewater. The MWMC is committed to clean water, community health and the environment. In 2019, we were again recognized with a Peak Performance Award for the 12th consecutive year.
Since its inception MWMC has been committed to providing high-quality wastewater services while being innovative in its techniques. We implement practices that help protect our environment while ensuring fiscal responsibility to our customers. For 31 years, we've been diverting valuable biosolids from our wastewater treatment process for beneficial reuse purposes at our local Biocycle Farm and other local agricultural lands.
Each of us has a role in keeping our environment and local waterways healthy. Each year, we spend time educating individuals and businesses through pollution prevention campaigns for proper disposal of items like FOG (fats, oil, grease), prescription drugs and chemicals.
Since creating our own FOG Kits in 2018, we have handed out almost 2,500 of them and, because of this success, ordered another supply of 2,500 in 2019.
