During the week beginning January 3, 2017 the Coos Bay-North Bend Water Board crews will continue routine maintenance flushing of water lines within its distribution system in Coos Bay. Flushing of water lines will be from Cedar Avenue moving south to Elrod Avenue; 14th Street moving east to 6th Street; North 6th Street east to North Bayshore Drive; and Birch Avenue south to Elrod Avenue. Flushing will begin in the morning each day about 8:00 a.m. and end at approximately 3:00 p.m., Tuesday 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.
