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 2 sources, the water is pumped through 307 miles of distribution lines to Springfield Utility Board’s (SUB’s) 60,000-plus water consumers. SUB also owns and maintains 11 pump stations and seven reservoirs.
