Resources for Landowners Affected by the Holiday Farm Fire
Environmental Land Assessments through the Pure Water Partners
The Pure Water Partners program is currently conducting free environmental assessments for landowners affected by the Holiday Farm Fire. Assessors can help you understand your unique property needs and make a plan for mitigating environmental challenges caused by wildlife including erosion control, replanting native trees and shrubs, and helping you develop a fire-wise future for your property.
The Pure Water Partners program provides annual payments, technical assistance, and/or other incentives to participating landowners. It also helps to connect landowners who wish to engage in restoration projects on their land with technical and financial assistance.
The Pure Water Partners program is a joint effort of the Eugene Water and Electric Board, The McKenzie Watershed Council, the Upper Willamette Soil and Water Conservation District, Cascade Pacific RC&D, US Forest Service, the McKenzie River Trust, and others. Together, we can protect water quality in the McKenzie River watershed.
