|An update about water use in our parks and providing recycled water for construction uses were highlights from the May 20th City Council meeting. |
Recycled water is non-potable water treated by our waste water treatment plant to state health standards that can be used for irrigation and other purposes without impacting our drinking water supply.
The City of Roseville announced additional water-use restrictions for Roseville water customers in light of Governor Brown’s Executive Order and the May 6 State Water Resources Control Board’s drought emergency action requiring increased statewide water-use reductions.
To meet the 25 percent statewide water reduction goal, City of Roseville customers are required to reduce water consumption by 28 percent over 2013, an 8 percent decrease from last year. This will require the implementation of more stringent drought provisions.
For residential customers, the most noticeable change includes watering day restrictions for outdoor irrigation. Watering days for residential turf will be limited to two days per week, Monday and Friday only, before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. Commercial customers will have watering days limited to Monday and Thursday.

|Roseville customers continue to reduce water use as the state endures a fourth year of a drought. March numbers show that residents and businesses have reduced water use by nearly 19 percent over this time in 2013. Since the start of the year, water consumption in Roseville is down 14.9 percent.|

|Roseville Electric Utility regularly looks for ways to safely improve operational efficiency and reduce costs, while maintaining our high services levels. Over five years ago, we initiated an evaluation of options to improve operational performance and reduce maintenance costs associated with management of wastewater at the Roseville Energy Park (REP). |
After studying more than a dozen different options, the utility pursued an option that increased efficiency and reduced costs by using deep well injection technology. After further evaluation and study, we've determined that operational improvements and enhancements that use deep well injection technology as an alternative to the current system being used at the REP, is no longer an economically viable option.
