Stage 1 of the North Bend Water Conservation Ordinance Begins Monday, August 15th:  The City of North Bend is actively pursuing water conservation in a variety of ways: through ongoing distribution system leak reduction efforts, customer conservation education, installation of replacement watermains and starting in 2020, the Water Conservation Ordinance (WCO). The WCO is now three years old. For some, this ordinance is an anticipated seasonal practice in our community, and for others, the WCO is new and as a participant, we understand new residents want to ensure they have all the information they need to join in water conservation efforts.
