Based on a combination of current watershed conditions and a 10-day forecast of mostly dry weather, North Bend Public Works Director Mark Rigos has declared the City will move from Stage 2 to Stage 3 of its Water Conservation Ordinance (WCO), effective Tuesday, September 5, 2023. The WCO will remain in effect until further notice.

WCO Stage 3 provides a series of simple directives for water usage:
