During the week beginning March 21, 2016, the Coos Bay-North Bend Water Board crews will continue routine maintenance flushing of waterlines within its distribution system in Coos Bay and North Bend. Flushing of waterlines in Coos Bay will be north and south of Lakeshore Drive and west of Crocker Street, and north and east of Taylor Avenue. Flushing in North Bend will be in the Airport Heights area west of Lincoln Street and north of Connecticut Avenue, and within the Roosevelt/Chinook/Steelhead Street neighborhood.
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 flushing may begin earlier in the morning and end earlier in the afternoon.
Customers within the affected areas 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 541-267‑3128.
