Due to unprecedented dry weather conditions and low water levels at Folsom Reservoir, the City of Roseville will be activating back-up groundwater wells within the city to preserve water levels at Folsom Reservoir. Groundwater wells will be active starting the week of January 27, 2014 and operated until further notice.
