I am looking into these boots for "clean the creek" events. Has anyone used them in higher levels or water (more then just a puddle but still below knee level) and exited with completely dry feet?

That only happens in an alternate universe. By the time you bend, reach, move, splash...you always get water inside your boots. If it's something you'll be doing a lot, get a pair of fisherman's hip waders if you want to stay dry. If you don't mind getting wet, but still want some protection for your feet, get a pair of water shoes. Plan C is to bring an extra dry pair of socks, shoes and a towel, because Murphy's Law guarantees that you'll either get water in your boots yourself or someone will do it for you.
