Beginning August 2, mandatory Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are being implemented for the Town of Creston and Erickson water systems. The Arrow Creek water system is experiencing high water usage and declining reservoir levels. Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are being implemented as a proactive measure for the anticipated extended hot weather and high demand.
Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are as follows:
💦 Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs are ONLY permitted between 6:00 am - 10:00 am and 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm.
💦 Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted any time.
Please note that Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures will remain in effect until further notice. Stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, hot and dry weather prevails, or stream flows decline to critically low levels. The Town of Creston and the Regional District of Central Kootenay greatly appreciate your cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures.
