Starting October 5, watering times for Roseville water customers will change to one-day-per-week (drip irrigation is excluded).
In May, the City of Roseville increased its drought stage to comply with the Governor’s Executive Order and the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) aimed at reducing statewide water use for all California water agencies.
The public is invited to a planning meeting Monday, October 19 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center, 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd., to help prepare for the future. The Center is midway through a planning process that began earlier this year to update the 3,000 square foot exhibit hall and develop a new, one-acre outdoor extension.
Starting September 29, Environmental Utilities staff will perform system tests to our improved groundwater well infrastructure. We installed two new pump stations that will enable us to move groundwater throughout the city’s water service area.
Roseville is a progressive city, focused on providing services to our community for a smart, sustainable future. Part of that future includes recent gains in economic development as our economy recovers from the Great Recession-- all the while facing an unprecedented fourth year of drought. A telltale sign of economic recovery is increased commercial and housing growth, not only in Roseville, but throughout the greater Sacramento region and statewide. As the stress on the ongoing drought wears on, customers and stakeholders ask us: “Why do you continue to build when there is a water shortage or drought?”
