Water Watch

Posted: July 12, 2019

During the recent and forecasted hot and dry weather, the City of Adel has experienced high water demands.

As a result, the City is implementing a Water Watch effective July 12, 2019, which is the first stage of conservation under the City’s Water Conservation Plan approved in 2017.

The Watch does not apply to Xenia Rural Water customers.

We encourage you to limit your outside watering. For example, water your lawn between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m., as evaporation takes away the majority of watering during the hotter daytime hours.

If this voluntary stage is unsuccessful, and if the weather continues to worsen, the City may need to move to the next stage of the Water Conservation Plan.
