Groundwater system testing starting next week
Starting next Tuesday, July 28, Environmental Utilities staff will perform system tests to our improved groundwater well infrastructure.
If you recall, we expanded the system earlier this year, adding two new wells in western Roseville, as part of our continued goal to develop a diversified water supply portfolio. We’ve also been hard at work the last several months building two pump stations. These pumps are vitally important because they will allow us to move groundwater from west to east, making it a viable backup source for most Roseville water customers. Now that we have fully completed these improvements, we have to test the new wells and pump stations alongside the design specifications and fully calibrate the system so that it meets final specifications. As a result, the groundwater button on our website will remain on for the duration of the testing. We don’t have an exact date when we will be completed, but will turn the groundwater status button off and provide you with an update.
The groundwater status button can be found at www.roseville.ca.us/eu.
