OWASA’s offices at 400 Jones Ferry Road, Carrboro, will close on Monday for Independence Day but OWASA’s lakes will be open for recreation on Monday, July 4, 2016, from 6:30 AM to 6 PM.

The lakes will also be open under the normal schedule before July the Fourth:

“We heartily encourage everyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty, boating and fishing at our lakes to visit us,” said Johnny Riley, OWASA’s Senior Lakes Warden.
