North Bend, Ore.  - The Coos Bay-North Bend Water Board owns and manages timber land within the Pony Creek Watershed. 

After a unit is logged, there is leftover wood residue and slash. 

It is a recommended practice to use burning to dispose of this material to abate fire hazards.

The Water Board is planning on burning Tuesday, October 24, 2017.  As a result, smoke in and around the watershed may be observed.  

Any questions can be directed to the Coos Bay-North Bend Water Board at (541) 267-3128 ext. 232.
