EWEB advises against drinking fountain water

Don't drink that water.

The Eugene Water & Electric Board does not advise those who cool off in the fountain at EWEB's headquarters next to the Willamette River to drink the water. That's because the water is recirculated, a spokesman said. There's human waste, bicycle grease and other pollutants in there, he said.

A front-page photograph in Thursday's Register-Guard showed a 5-year-old girl drinking water from the fountain out of her hat.

Santa Clara fire station offers the public a peek

The public is invited to take a look at the new Santa Clara fire station on Saturday.

The open house, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will include a neighborhood barbecue and tours of the 16,800-square-foot building at 111 Santa Clara Ave., off River Road, in Eugene.

Since 2002, the city has been providing fire and emergency medical response to the area from a converted house near the new station. The house has been sold to the Neighborhood Economic Development Corp., which will use it for low-income housing.

The new $4 million station was designed by Berry Architects of Eugene, in association with Peck Smiley Ettlin of Portland. John Hyland Construction of Springfield was the general contractor.
