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 help the water systems of Marcola, Deerhorn, Shangri-La, Blue River and Shenandoah as well, contracting with these communities to provide assistance ranging from processing bills to providing management and support services for operations and long-range planning.

Thank you for letting us serve you!
