Drywell Decommissioning

Drywell decommissioning

A pilot project is getting underway off of Howard Ave around Escalante and westward.

The City of Eugene is planning to construct drainage improvements in your area. The project will eliminate the drywells in the streets in your neighborhood and connect the existing drainage system to the primary drainage network in the area. The work will improve the drainage system, help prevent future flooding, and protect groundwater quality.

This work is City funded and there will be no direct charges to you for the work.

Survey crews will be in your area gathering the information needed to plan and design improvements. Underground utilities will be marked with temporary paint. You will receive more information prior to any construction activities.
