Medford Water Commission

Medford Water Commission - 541.774.2430

The Engineering Division of the Medford Water Commission is responsible for overseeing planning, design, and construction management of all water system facility projects, from source to point of delivery. All development within the service area, whether public or private, usually involves water provided by the Commission. Engineering receives and reviews plans and specifications for all of these developments.
Engineering advises the Board of Water Commissioners on technical matters, advances in the water industry, and of government laws and regulations that will influence the operation of the system. This division also monitors water supply and demand, factors used in considering future expansion and maintenance of the water system.
Medford Water Commission maintains a 20-year Facility Plan and a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The Facility Plan, which covers supply sources and community demands, is updated every five years. The CIP outlines the scheduling and implementation of the capital projects necessary to maintain and improve the water system and is updated every year. Capital improvements related to water facility and distribution projects average $5 million per year. These improvements include the upgrade of facilities such as the Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant (Duff WTP), reservoir and pump station construction, as well as programs for the relaying and relining of water mains, the replacement of older or defective hydrants and the placement of meters.
