Next week (May 16-22) is National Public Works Week, a time to recognize the value and necessity of public works maintenance and projects for our communities. From street maintenance, to stormwater management, to wastewater services, and much more, public works services are essential to our health, safety, and quality of life.
At the MWMC, we're proud to provide one of these essential public works services, and that's cleaning wastewater on a regional basis for the Eugene-Springfield community. We work closely with the City of Eugene's Public Works Department and the City of Springfield's Development & Public Works Department to make that happen. Check out the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a Springfield wastewater staff member and learn more about how the cities of Eugene and Springfield, along with Lane County, work together to safely return cleaned wastewater to the Willamette River.
