Water Conservation

 Abiqua Creek and Silver Creek , Silverton’s water sources, supply water not only to the community but also to many farms downstream. In an effort to conserve our city water supplies, a new Water Curtailment Plan was adopted per Resolution 22-05. Level I, Low Level Alert, of the Water Curtailment Plan is in effect May 1, 2022.
