Water line flushing happening this week

NORTH BEND, Ore. -- If you live in Cooos Bay or North Bend, you may see some discolored water coming from your tap, but officials say it's just the city flushing the lines.

The water flushing will take place all this week, starting with the area of Fir Street west to Norman Avenue and Ohio Street to Newmark Avenue.

During the second part of the week flushing will be from Newmark south to Nautical Lane and Norman Avenue west to Morrison Street. 

Flushing will begin in the morning each day about 8:00 a.m., and end at approximately 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

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 541-267-3128.
