Water Testing

Public water systems are tested for contamination, but if you own a private well, routine testing is up to you.

Yearly testing is recommended for private wells. Oregon well owners are not required to test their wells by law unless you plan to sell the property upon which the well is located (ORS 448.271). If you are building a new well, other regulations apply.

Water Treatment

The main treatment plant, Pony Creek Water Treatment Plant, is located on Ocean Boulevard, Coos Bay. Improvements completed  in 2013 increased production capacity from 8 to 12 million gallons per day (MGD). The North Spit Water Treatment Plant, located on TransPacific Lane, North Bend, treats water from the dunes well system and has a capacity of 1 MGD. If an emergency arises, the North Spit Plant supplements the Pony Creek Plant to meet the needs of Water Board customers.
