The City of Springfield is surveying residents that live just outside the city limits, seeking to understand why people do or do not want to annex into the city. A link to the survey and additional information provided by the city can be found at the City of Springfield Development and Public Works Department website.
You can also click the link to view the city's map that identifies the areas that will be surveyed. Area 1 has already been surveyed. Areas 2 through 6 will be surveyed over the next 4 months. Areas 1 and 2 correspond with the Rainbow Water District service area.
Rainbow mailed our own letter of explanation at the end of July, along with your monthly water bill. A copy of Rainbow's letter is available here.
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 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!
