Drought conditions in the western United States require urgent efforts by cities, counties, and water agencies to continue to provide reliable and safe water supplies. Part of our water supply portfolio includes a growing groundwater program. We have groundwater wells located throughout Roseville at critical locations.

Work is underway to construct more wells in Roseville that extract water for drinking water purposes when surface water supplies become limited.  With the use of our groundwater wells, we can complement surface water resources from Folsom Lake and maintain water supply reliability regardless of dry or drought conditions.

Groundwater pump stations under construction this fall

We are completing the construction of two groundwater well pump stations in west Roseville located on Westbrook Drive and  Solaire Drive locations beginning October 2021. The actual groundwater well was installed many years ago and the City is now prepared to construct the above-ground pump station facility. 

What to expect

We recognize that constructing a new well in a neighborhood comes with disruption, and it is our goal to minimize any impacts you might experience over the next nine months as we design and build the new wells. We will be working during regular business hours, typically 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Once the well is operational, you won't notice that they're operating. As part of the design process, we are initiating a noise study to ensure recommendations from that study are incorporated into the final design.

Our existing groundwater pump stations are fitted with panels for dampening and absorbing sound. And the staff is onsite during regular business hours and occasionally after hours.

The design includes perimeter walls to match the existing blocks and we will incorporate landscape plantings to soften the look.

Existing well house

This is a well house that is constructed near a park. The new wells will look similar and include landscape features to screen and soften the building attributes.
