Medford Water Commission Rejects Concept of Delaying Water Treatment Expansion
Wednesday afternoon the Medford Water Commission rejected the concept of delaying a major upgrade of the Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant in favor of a conservation plan to cut down water use.

The conservation plan was being advocated by the cities of Talent, Phoenix, Central Point, Eagle Point and Jacksonville in lieu of the $70 million expansion slated for sometime between 2025 and 2030.

The commission said it has already undertaken many of the conservation programs being looked at by the other cities and firmly stated their primary mission is to supply water to the citizens of Medford.
