Karl Morgenstern is EWEB’s source water protection coordinator. Ask him about threats to the McKenzie River, and he can rattle off a startlingly long list with ease. “Threats to the McKenzie water supply range from tanker trucks carrying hazardous materials getting in accidents and spilling their loads, to industrial discharges, development on the river, septic systems, runoff of pesticides from agriculture and forest operations, urban runoff from East Springfield during storms from roads and parking lots.”
