Eau Claire is a city located in west-central Wisconsin. The population was 61,704 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Eau Claire CountyGR6. Eau Claire is the principal city of and included in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is included in the Eau-Claire-Menomonie, Wisconsin Combined Statistical Area.

The lumber industry drove Eau Claire's growth in the late 19th century. At one time, there were 22 sawmills operating in the city. Today retail, health care and education are the primary employment sectors in Eau Claire.

Since the loss of several thousand manufacturing jobs in the early 1990s (due to the closure of the local Uniroyal tire plant-Uniroyal has itself since become a part of the Michelin corporation), the city's economy was reshaped by the opening of a number of plants engaged in the construction of computer hardware, such as Hutchinson Technology's largest plant (the company is based in Hutchinson, Minnesota) and 3M, based in the Twin Cities.

Eau Claire is home to a few national/regional companies including Menards, National Presto Industries, Inc., Silver Spring Gardens (world's largest grower and producer of horseradish products) and Erbert & Gerberts (a midwestern sandwich chain).
