COOS BAY, Ore. -- The wastewater treatment plant at 680 Ivy Avenue is being brought to safe levels after it was found to have been contaminated with bacteria.
The water quality is expect to improve by the end of the week, officials said.
The city first noticed high fecal coliform bacteria counts on Aug. 29 and brought it to safe levels by treating the wastewater with seed sludge.
Over the Labor Day weekend, seed sludge wasn't available and the water quality decreased.
City officials said on Wednesday contract operators started hauling seed sludge from the North Bend and Coquille plants to Coos Bay.
