The City of Owen Sound Water Department would like to remind residents that if you require potable water and/or showers due to frozen services, the Bayshore and the YMCA are still available to assist you.

For residents who have had frozen services, please be advised that you can still access water at the following locations:

• Harry Lumley Bayshore at 1900 3rd Ave E, Owen Sound (bring your own jug/container)

• Julie McArthur Regional Recreation Centre at 700 10th Street East (bring your own jug/container)

Showers are available at the Recreation Centre. Residents are required to supply their own towels, soaps, and shampoo. The YMCA's hours are as follows:

Saturdays 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Sundays 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Water Department continues to ask homeowners and businesses that have either been contacted by City Staff or are on the run water map located on our website, to continue running water from one tap only, about the size of a pencil, 1⁄2 inch diameter (about 1 cup (250 ml) of water in 10 seconds) until further notice. At which time, homeowners and businesses will be notified by the City Water Department to discontinue running their water.Your billing will reflect average historical usage during this time period, and will not include this extra water.

Please visit the City's website and click on the "Frozen Water Services" button for more information, including a map of the run water areas.
