Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures in Effect for the Town of Creston and Erickson Water Systems

Creston, BC: Starting August 2nd, 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. As a proactive measure for the anticipated extended hot weather and high levels of demand, the Arrow Creek water system requires that Creston and Erickson Water System users conserve water.

STAGE 2 WATER CONSERVATION MEASURES are in effect for both the Town of Creston and Erickson Water Systems are as follows:

  • Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6:00am-10:00am and 8:00pm-10:00pm.
  • 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.

Erickson water conservation measures are available on the RDCK website: www.rdck.ca/water.
