Your Roseville utilities help purify millions of gallons of wastewater every day at two treatment facilities. This infrastructure ensures that when you flush the toilet, do a load of laundry or take a shower, that water is treated before it enters Roseville’s creeks. Work is underway right now on a multimillion dollar expansion project to increase the treatment capacity at the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant (PGWWTP).
Roseville’s popular Fall Front Yard Leaf Pickup service begins October 31, 2016, weather permitting. This convenient residential program keeps fallen front yard leaves and debris from clogging stormwater drains and washing into our creeks and streams, disturbing the sensitive ecological balance and threatening plants and wildlife.
Roseville’s Wastewater Utility has been recognized as a “Utility of the Future Today” by the Utility of the Future Recognition Program. The program celebrates the progress and exceptional performance of the nation’s wastewater utilities.
When you are inspecting your garden this summer, you will find many interesting things to observe. One insect you may notice is a strange looking bug that can be over one-inch long and has an unusual appendage on its legs that looks like a leaf is attached. This bug is called the Leaffooted Bug, and it can do some damage to tomatoes, pomegranates, citrus and other ripe fruit. The damage is caused when this insect pierces the skin of ripe fruit and inserts a large sucking mouth part to the extract the juices.
Earlier this year, Mother Nature greeted us with increased rainfall and a healthy snowpack, positioning us with ample water supplies throughout the spring and summer. This change was a welcome sight to many in Northern California—and provided much needed relief from drought conditions.
