Water Data Files

The Town obtains its water from two sources -- Holland Creek and Stocking Lake. 

Water is a very precious resource, and therefore the Town is taking several measures to encourage citizens to reduce consumption, including:

  • Implementation of water restrictions during the dry season
  • Installation of water meters at all residences and businesses to help determine and repair any leaks in the system and to monitor consumption
  • Distribution of educational water-wise mail-outs to all households
  • Implementation of regulations making low-flow toilets mandatory in all new construction and renovations
  • Installation of low-flow toilets in all municipal facilities
  • Undertaking capital upgrades to the water supply and storage system
