Residents in Creston will not be able to water their lawns as the Town of Creston has placed mandatory Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures.

Stage 3 water conservation means that residents are not allowed to water their lawns, but gardens, trees and shrubs can be watered between 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Watering using drip irrigation, a watering can or handheld hose is allowed at any time.

The measures came into effect at noon on Thursday.

The water conservation measures will remain in effect until further notice.
