2014 Consumer Confidence Report Ready for Distribution
The 2014 Water Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) has been finalized and will be made available to all customers over the next few weeks.  The City will be reporting on the quantity and quality of the City’s source, treatment, and distribution of drinking water to our customers.   The availability of the CCR will be announced in the City water bill that will be mailed in March.  Customers will be given a web address that will link to the City’s website, where the CCR can be viewed or printed.  The 2014 CCR has also been posted on the City’s web site.  Post cards will be prepared for mail distribution, announcing the availability of the 2014 CCR to those consumers of the City’s water that do not directly pay the bill for water consumption.  Additional copies of the CCR will be printed and made available for pick-up at the Public Works Department in City Hall or by calling (541) 942-3349 to request a copy via mail.

NASA's Coming to Town - STAR Party at the Cottage Grove Public Library
Mark your calendar now for Monday, March 16th at 7:00 pm when the Cottage Grove Public Library will host NASA Astronomer Teena Della and the Eugene Astronomical Society (and their AMAZING telescopes) for an evening "Star Party.”  NASA astronomer Teena Della will be on hand to answer all of your inquisitive Astronomy questions inside the library during the event.  This is a family friendly event so load everyone up in the "Station Wagon" and come on down to the Cottage Grove Public Library. 

We will also be holding nine Astronomy workshops at Cottage Grove High School and Lincoln Middle School on Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th, so encourage your child to look out for those events in their science classes those days.
