DROUGHT ALERT: Owatonna Watering Ban Now in Effect
Owatonna Public Utilities has been notified by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources that our watershed has entered the drought restrictive response phase.
It is crucial to take action to reduce outdoor and indoor water usage immediately.
We strongly urge all customers to cease all lawn irrigation.
We are at the end of the growing season, so it is okay to let your grass go dormant. This is a natural protective state for the grass.

This ban will be in effect until September 30, 2023.
