About the Village of Cache Creek
While Cache Creek shares the benefits of mining and forestry related activities, tourism is the main engine of the local economy with 11 motels, numerous restaurants and gas stations.
The Cache Creek Landfill is operated by Wastech. The landfill industry has added 120 jobs and a $3,000,000 payroll to the local economy.
There is a variety of very affordable homes in detached, duplex, townhouse and mobile home units along with apartments. For those who want to build their own home there is an ample supply of residential lots and building sites for apartments. As well, commercial lots and industrial land is available for development.
Cache Creek supports one elementary school and secondary students attend school just 10 kilometres away in Ashcroft, where the Thompson Rivers University also offers courses.
Cache Creek provides its residents with water, sewage and garbage collection, while fire protection is provided by a 25 member Volunteer Fire Department.
The Village is situated within a narrow zone of very low precipitation, with an annual rainfall of 10 cm. The area is termed dry continental, being hot and dry in the summer, and cool and dry in the winter. This dry, arid climate and the country living atmosphere is very alluring to retired people.
