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 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.
