Water Announcement: Here in Lincoln City, our water comes from Schooner Creek. As of July 6, 2021, Schooner Creek was flowing at 40% below average for this time of year. As of this moment, we have enough water available without implementing serious curtailment measures, however we are projecting Schooner Creek will reach concerning levels in the late summer, until fall rains return. We are asking citizens, businesses and visitors to use water wisely. Visit our water conservation page or the EPA water conservation (WaterSense) webpage for conservation information and tips.
Announcement: Due to ongoing safety concerns due to Fire, Rescue and Police services not being able to access the beach due to the beach drive accesses blocked by parked vehicles, the beach drive accesses located at NW 15th St & NW 34th Ct. will remain closed through noon on September 07, 2021.
