Exeter Residents on a 3-day Watering Schedule

At the Exeter City Council meeting of Tuesday, May 9th, the Council took action to move from Water Conservation “Stage 3” to a less severe Water Conservation “Stage 2”.

water conservationWhat does this mean for Exeter residents?
 
Effective immediately, all City of Exeter residents will be on a three (3) day watering schedule. Even addresses may water on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and odd addresses may water on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.  Outdoor irrigation must occur before 10:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. on designated days. This is a change from the previous Stage 3 – before 7:00 a.m. and after 8:00 p.m. schedule.
 
The following prohibitions are still in effect:
 
The washing of sidewalks, driveways, parking areas, courts, patios or other paved area is absolutely prohibited.
 
The application of potable water to outdoor landscapes during and within 48 hours after measurable rainfall is prohibited.
 
The use of water which allows any amount of water to run off to a gutter, ditch or drain.  Every water user it deemed to have his or her water distribution line and facilities under his or her control at all times and to know the manner and extent of his or her water use and excess run-off.
 
The excessive use, loss or escape of water through breaks, leaks or malfunctions in the water user’s plumbing or distribution facilities for any period of time after the escape of water should reasonably have been discovered and corrected.  It shall be presumed that a period of 48 hours after discovery is a reasonable time within which to correct the leak or break.
