Green Grass Gauge

If you have not been able to pick up a Green Grass Gauge, you can always make one yourself. Watch a short video about making a DIY Green Grass Gauge here, then grab a tuna can and print out some test strips to get started!

Emergency Preparedness

September is National Preparedness Month. We are mailing information to help you get started on preparing for an emergency. Additional helpful information is available from the American Red Cross website, Be Red Cross Ready.

Communications Award

Each Rainbow staff member performs multiple duties, and this includes working together to meet the district's needs for graphic arts, web design, writing and photography. We congratulate our staff for collaborating to earn this award in the small utility category from our water industry peers!

Who We Are

Rainbow Water District provides high-quality drinking water and emergency response services at a fair cost to our customers while protecting our assets for long-term success. We are your friends and neighbors, Lane County residents living just outside the Springfield city limits, and we care about the livability, sustainability and long-term economic vitality of the greater Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area.

Today, Rainbow Water (and Fire) District proudly serves excellent quality well water to our retail customers in north and west Springfield, primarily north of Hayden Bridge Road and west of Aspen. Indirectly, we supply water for other north Springfield homes and businesses through our wholesale contract with the Springfield Utility Board. Eugene-Springfield Fire and Life Safety Department provides district residents with fire protection and emergency services under a separate agreement.

We are happy to assist the communities of Marcola and Deerhorn as well, contracting with them to process water bills and provide other management and support services.

Thank you for letting us serve you!
