North Bend Moves to Stage 2 of Water Conservation Ordinance

Water Conservation Ordinance, Stage 2

Based on a combination of current watershed conditions and a continued forecast of hot and dry weather, North Bend Public Works Director Mark Rigos has declared the City will move to Stage 2 of its Water Conservation Ordinance (WCO), effective Tuesday, August 22, 2023. The WCO will remain in effect until further notice.

As climate change continues to impact King County and the Pacific Northwest region, the City encourages citizens to join in on conservation efforts, and the WCO is a great way to actively help make a difference. The months of May and July this year were some of the hottest spring months on record for the Seattle area. This caused snow to melt throughout our watershed much faster than usual.

The WCO pertains to all property owners inside City limits and all City of North Bend water customers inside or outside City limits.
