Message for Water Users!

The City of Exeter has a message for Exeter water users. The city water system will be shut off from approximately 9 P.M. Friday evening until approximately 6 A.M. Saturday morning to repair a major leak.
We encourage residents to prepare beforehand by storing water for use during the outage. Consider how much water your family and pets may need for drinking, flushing toilets, handwashing, and cooling during this time. Do not run washing machines or dishwashers during this time as you may damage your appliances.
Once the water system is restored, residents will need to boil their water prior to consumption until further notice.

For Immediate Release

Message to the Public

As previously explained, our largest producing well, located at the corner of Belmont and Glaze, has been offline for repairs.

We are happy to report that the repairs have been completed and Ingram Equipment is onsite this morning finishing the install. The State is requiring us to take a series of two bacteriological samples before the well can be put back in service. Each test has a 24 hour, mandatory hold time. As soon as Ingram finishes the installation this afternoon, the well will be flushed. Once that’s done, we have a certified operator on standby ready to collect the first sample and deliver it to the lab in Fresno for testing. Those results should be available tomorrow. The second sample will be collected and delivered to the lab tomorrow, with results expected Saturday. The lab will call our operator as soon as results are available Saturday. (more…)
