Who We Are
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.
Established by a 1949 Lane County election, residents chose the first five members of the Board of Commissioners and voted to form the district for the purpose of supplying water for drinking and household use. In 1952, district residents empowered the district to also provide protection from fire.
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 agreement with the Springfield Utility Board. We are happy to assist the community of Marcola as well, managing their water system under contract. The City of Springfield Fire and Life Safety Department provides district residents with fire protection and emergency services under a separate contract.
Thank you for letting us serve you!
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.
