The City of Exeter has implemented voluntary water conservation measures and is encouraging all Exeter consumers - residential, business and commercial/industrial classifications served by the City's water system – to help spread and balance peak water demands. Voluntary compliance will help ensure an adequate water supply and pressure for the entire City's needs, including fire protection.
The primary goal of the City's Voluntary Water Use Schedule is to distribute customers' water use throughout the week and throughout each day. The City's system is designed to deliver adequate water; however when everyone uses water during the same time period, on the same day of the week, the system becomes stressed beyond a comfortable operation mode.
Here's how you can help:
Residents are asked to limit watering to the following schedule to help reduce stress on the City's drinking water supply from June 1st to September 30th annually:
- Odd numbered street addresses water only on Wednesdays, Fridays, and/or Sundays.
- Even numbered street addresses water only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and/or Saturdays.
- No outdoor watering on Mondays to allow the City's system to recharge.
- This program also encourages all customers to turn off their sprinklers on rainy days.
- No watering between 10AM and 8PM
The city of Exeter is situated at the base of the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. The area has scenic beauty, a thriving business community and a population who take great pride in the town's heritage, quality housing, good schools, and a very low incidence of crime.
Situated in the middle of California's agricultural heartland the great San Joaquin Valley, one of the world's most fertile valleys, Exeter is known for the sweetest oranges in the world. Exeter is also known for it's abundant supply of citrus, deciduous fruits, nuts and table grapes.
National recognition was given to Exeter in 2000 as "One of America's Prettiest Painted Places". Professional artists have painted huge murals depicting the history and culture of the area on exterior walls throughout the downtown area. There are currently 29 murals in this outdoor art gallery, and more are planned. Group tours can be arranged.
One of the newer facilities in the community is the Exeter Bark Park. The park is becoming a popular gathering spot for residents and visitors alike. Look under the "Recreation" header for a link to more information about Exeter's dog park.
