Water Conservation Measures in Effect


Submitted by: 



Mandatory Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are in effect now for the Town of Creston and Erickson Water Systems. The Arrow Creek water system is continuing to experience leakage in the amount of 25% of the total flow in the old Arrow Creek concrete water main, impacting the ability to supply peak demand flow. This leakage will be corrected when the final phase water main installation is completed. The leakage in conjunction with high levels of demand, as well as above normal temperature levels for this time of year, requires that Creston and Erickson Water System users conserve water.

• Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6 am – 10 am and 8 pm – 10 pm.

• Watering of gardens, trees and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted anytime.

The Town of Creston and the RDCK appreciate your cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures. Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures will remain in effect until further notice and stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, hot and dry weather prevails, or stream flows decline to critically low levels.
