EWEB believes in the importance of educating today's youth about energy and water resources. The utility provides more than $500,000 annually to support such programs.

Economic Development Loan program

EWEB offers a loan fund to help with the upfront cost of water, electric and telecommunication services associated with new or expanded facilities.

Community connection

From building parks for children to coordinating cleanups along the McKenzie River, giving back to the community through volunteering and public service runs deep in the foundation of the utility.

Contributions in Lieu of Taxes

As a public utility that pays no property taxes, EWEB instead gives 6 percent of its revenues to the city of Eugene as a payment in lieu of taxes.
