Community coming together to help meet water reduction target in the face of persistent drought
Although the storms in February and March were a welcomed sight, the recent snow pack survey completed on May 1, shows snow pack at just 18 percent of average for this time of year. With the precipitation season over and with a limited runoff from the Sierra Nevada mountains expected, the summer and fall will continue to make this a challenging drought.

That is why it is so critical that Roseville water customers help do their part to help reduce water use this year by 20 percent. So far, Roseville residents and businesses have responded by reducing overall water demand this year through April by 12.6%.

January had above average usage, bringing down the overall savings, but customers responded to the City's drought declaration with an average 20% reduction from February through April. This response shows that our community is taking this direct situation seriously and community members are doing their part to reduce water use through efficiency.
