The City of Owen Sound is urging residents that if you are currently running water, please DO NOT stop even if it becomes mild outside, and to continue to run the water until you are notified to discontinue. This will continue for a number of weeks until the extreme frost depth period is over.

If you are serviced by a hose from a neighbour, DO NOT reduce the flow rate, please keep a tap running full open.

Many homes that have been hooked up via a hose have refrozen when they decreased flow for even the smallest amount of time.

Please visit the City website and click on the "Frozen Water Services" button for more information, including a map of the affected areas. Further areas may be added to this map as time goes on, please keep checking back for updates.
