SUB’s Water System

The majority of your water comes from a system of seven wellfields that tap groundwater from a vast aquifer that lies underneath Springfield. Supplementing this is water drawn from the Middle Fork Willamette River. From these two sources, the water is pumped through 240 miles of distribution lines to SUB’s 56,000-plus water consumers. SUB also owns and maintains six pumping stations and seven reservoirs.
