June 23, 2021: Due to the high water usage and declining reservoir levels being experienced by the Arrow Creek water system, the Town of Creston and Erickson Water systems are implementing MANDATORY Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.
In Stage 2, 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 gardens, trees and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted any time.

Stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, hot and dry weather prevails, or stream flows decline to critically low levels. Stage 2 water conservation measures will remain in effect until further notice. On behalf of the Town of Creston and the Regional District of Central Kootenay, thank you for your cooperation!
