Rainbow Water District has managed the Marcola Water District since 1994. We appreciate our partnership with the community of Marcola, and are pleased to recognize that the Marcola Water District earned an Outstanding Performance award at their last public health inspection!
MARCOLA WATER DISTRICT
Established by a 1940 Lane County election, Marcola 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. The district also has authority to manage a small system of streetlights and storm drains.
Board and Budget Information
The Marcola Water District Board of Commissioners regularly meets on the third Wednesday of every month, beginning at 7:00 pm, at the Mohawk Valley Rural Fire District, 92068 Marcola Road.
