Medford Water Commission turns 98 this year!

Medford Water Commission was established through a change in the city charter on November 7, 1922. In 1925, the sale of $975,000 in bonds was approved to develop the pristine Big Butte Springs water supply and build a pipeline to town (a current value of over $95 million from an estimated 1925 population of 12,000 people).

This commitment by Medford citizens, incurring and paying off a large debt to build a safe and sufficient water supply, continues to benefit our residents today.

We maintain that forward-thinking as our organization approaches its 100th birthday in 2022, already thinking ahead to serving our customers for the next 100 years. This includes the construction of resilient facilities, replacing aging infrastructure, and improvements in the facilities that store, treat and transport water to our 140,000 customers.
