Running-WaterLimited notices to run water were distributed to 40 homes and businesses in Owen Sound as of January 20.

The City of Owen Sound Water Department is currently distributing ‘Run Water’ notices to approximately 40 locations in the City of Owen Sound.

These locations are identified as vulnerable ‘priority one’ locations in the City’s Standard Operating Procedure for preventing frozen pipes. This is a proactive first step to thwart any potential damage to pipes, residences, and businesses. Extended periods of extremely cold weather would be required to reach ‘priority two’ or ‘priority three’.

The City has adopted the practice of running water on the principle that the cost of the lost water negates the expense and inconvenience of frozen pipes.
