The Town of Creston is the purveyor of potable drinking water to users connected to the Town of Creston community water system. The Town of Creston has an obligation to provide safe drinking water to the community. It does so through thorough quality control, an extensive distribution system, and maintaining multiple water sources and reservoirs. Creston’s water meets, or is better than, all federal and provincial health-related guidelines and is tested regularly to make sure standards are being upheld.
Water from Arrow Creek accounts for over 99% of the current potable water supply for the Town of Creston. The treated water is monitored for free chlorine residual as it enters the main Creston reservoir, and an automated chlorination dosing system compensates for any low chlorine residual that may be present, ensuring safe disinfection for Creston consumers. Additionally, the Town of Creston maintains two potable groundwater wells within the confines of Creston itself that are independently capable of providing an adequate potable water supply for the community.
