FAQs

  • Q:

    × When can I contact city offices?

    City offices are open from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, except on holidays.

  • Q:

    × What are summer sprinkling or irrigation sewer rates?

    The summer sprinkling/irrigation sewer rates are for individually metered single-family residential sewer users who are customers of the Coos Bay - North Bend Water Board.  This group was selected as they usually have a larger lot and room for a garden, flowers, etc.

    The sewer rates for individually metered single-family residential sewer users during the May through the October billing cycle are a flat rate, calculated from the average water consumption for the prior six month billing cycle of November through April.  During the May through October billing cycle an individually metered single family dwelling will pay this flat rate or their actual rate, whichever is less.

    Accounts opened during the April billing cycle or those that open an account during the May through October billing cycle who do not have any prior history, a calculated flat rate will be charged or the rate based on the actual water consumption shall be charged, whichever is less.

    The City is divided up into several different billing cycles because the Coos Bay – North Bend Water Board is not able to read the entire City’s water meters in one week.  That means the May through October billing cycle for the residents throughout the City will vary.  Some customer’s May through October billing cycle will start at the end of May and others will start in June; each customer is provided six months of sprinkling rates
