Murphy Company looking to fill Eugene wetlands for expansion

Eugene wood products firm Murphy Company wants to fill in nearly 20 acres of ponds and wetlands in northwest Eugene as it prepares to expand its plywood plant.

The company’s application with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers this month comes as Murphy Company looks to construct at least one new building, a glue loft, at its 64-acre plant and headquarters between Highway 99 and Prairie Road, Eugene building permit applications show.
