During the week beginning January 23, 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 North 6th Street east to North Bayshore Drive; Birch Avenue south to Elrod Avenue; Elrod Avenue south to Lockhart Avenue; South 14th Street east to Front Street; and the Englewood and Libby areas. Flushing will begin in the morning each day about 6:00 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
