Disposable plastic water bottles are a source of waste across the United States and only a fraction of these bottles are ever recycled---leading to substantial impacts on our rivers, oceans, and landfills.
The City of Eugene’s Water Station Project has partnered with Eugene Cascades & Coast Sports Commission and the City of Eugene’s Rental Housing Code team through sponsorships that expands access to water bottle refilling stations for local events. The stations were purchased through a generous grant from Lane County Waste Management in 2016.
Eugene’s water refilling stations have already helped reduce numbers of discarded single use bottles at local events, and including water refilling stations highlights the importance of our local water resources while ensuring access to clean drinking water for all attendees.

Up to ten water stations are available to any public event, and delivery and set up services are provided by Action RentAll Opens a New Window. , a local event services contractor, for a low fee.
