For almost a year, Beyond Toxics has been surveying households in West Eugene neighborhoods to learn about air quality and health conditions residents are facing. Bethel neighborhood, the area where we have been canvassing, is where 99% of Eugene’s air toxic emissions are released from industry facilities. We are now asking residents across the city to take our online survey, so that we can expand and also contextualize our knowledge.
Our right to clean air and water is our right to life. Residents of Eugene’s westside neighborhoods–where polluting industries are overwhelmingly located–have to fight harder for this right. Air doesn’t stay in one zip code, we all breathe dirty air! Whatever your neighborhood, you can help Beyond Toxics document our community health concerns.
Visit BeyondToxics.org and look for the link on the bottom right: “If you live in Lane County, you can take our Environmental Community Health Survey.” The survey takes just 7-10 minutes to participate. Thank you for helping achieve environmental justice and a healthy community.

LTD is proposing major changes to bus routes. LTD proposes to remove routes and stops and give more frequent service to certain locations increasing the number of riders walking 1/2 mile to the bus stop. The idea is to increase ridership, but many riders (data on these riders is unknown by anyone) may be left under served. The issue is very complex. Several neighborhoods that are most dramatically affected, are organized and having meetings with LTD. I do not know how our neighborhood residents living adjacent to the bus routes on Willamette, along 29th, 28th, 24th, & Chambers (maybe Crest?) use the buses. There is little or no data available. The changes are based on “points of contact” with the community — maybe opinion polls. If any of you use buses or if you know bus riders who want to be involved, the Southeast Neighbors has a committee actively working on these issues.
The proposed changes on routes on East Amazon, Fox Hollow, Willamette and Donald greatly concern SEN bus users. Additionally, other neighborhoods in North and West Eugene are also concerned and involved with questioning LTD.

2020 Consolidated Plan Process
To supplement personal emergency supplies and help the community prepare for a large-scale disaster, EWEB is working with partners to develop emergency water distribution sites using groundwater wells, as well as mobile water trailers. Our plan calls for the development of five geographically dispersed well sites by 2022.
As of December 2019, three sites are operational:
Prairie Mountain School – 5305 Royal Ave.
Howard Elementary School – 700 Howard Avenue
Eugene Science Center – 2300 Leo Harris Parkway
Two new sites will be in construction this year, at the Sheldon Fire Station and the Lane County Fairgrounds & Event Center.
If disaster strikes our community’s water system and you need to obtain water from one of these distribution sites, you will need to bring your own storage containers. Learn how to clean and prepare water containers.
