OMU celebrates National Drinking Water Week

OMU, along with other public utilities across the nation will celebrate the benefits of an accessible, safe and ample water supply May 6–10, 2019. As you may know, Owensboro is fortunate to have an ample supply of water thanks to an underground aquifer. This water is then treated by OMU and provided to not only the residents of Owensboro, but also to three water districts which deliver water to all of Daviess County.

In celebration of National Drinking Water Week, OMU will provide a free gift to those visiting our Customer Service Center on Tamarack Road May 6 through 10, while supplies last.

Did you know bottled water costs 2,000 more time that of tap water? To learn more about OMU’s water system and supply, visit to review our annual Water Quality Report. For more information about our water source, its protection and the importance of water, follow OMU on Facebook and Twitter.
