During the week beginning February 15, 2016, Coos Bay-North Bend Water Board will continue routine maintenance flushing of waterlines within its distribution system in Coos Bay. Flushing of waterlines will be in the Eastside area on 6th Avenue from I Street north to D Street, west to Bessie Street, east to SOMAR; and Commercial and Highway 101 north to Newmark. Flushing will begin in the morning each day about 8:00 a.m. and end at approximately 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. In some locations, it may be necessary to begin flushing earlier in the morning and end earlier in the afternoon.
Customers within the affected area may experience periods of reduced pressure and may notice a discoloration of the water during these flushing periods. Customers should avoid doing laundry if their water appears discolored. If the discoloration does not clear up promptly, please notify the Water Board at 267‑3128.
