The City of Eugene hired Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience (OPDR) in the late summer 2012 to assist with developing the assessment tool and to run a pilot assessment looking at two sectors: drinking water and public health. In fall, 2012 a steering group comprised of staff from City of Eugene, City of Springfield, EWEB, Lane County, Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development, Oregon State University, and the Institute for Sustainable Communities was convened to develop the assessment methodology and tools. An assessment of the drinking water and public health sectors was completed by June 30, 2013 under the contract with OPDR. Funds were secured through the Lane Livability Consortium in summer 2013 to conduct assessments of additional sectors with the goal to complete the assessment of all sectors at the conclusion of the grant.
