We Are Roseville - April 26, 2022


April 26, 2022

Big Boy 4014

World's Largest Steam Locomotive 'Big Boy No. 4014' visit postponed 

Union Pacific announced plans to postpone the Big Boy No. 4014’s West Coast Steam Tour to focus its efforts on easing supply chain congestion. The tour had been scheduled to depart Cheyenne, Wyoming, June 26.

“We know many rail enthusiasts make travel plans and communities prepare to act as host, which is why we made this decision now,” said Scott Moore, Union Pacific Senior Vice President – Corporate Relations and Chief Administrative Officer. “We have a duty to continue our efforts to reduce supply chain congestion and provide customers the service they deserve; given the impact of a steam tour on our operations that focus must be our priority.”

Union Pacific will communicate updated plans for a steam tour once service performance levels return to normal.

School of Solids

Roseville hosts wastewater industry experts for hands-on learning 

In mid-April, more than 1,300 people attended the California Water Environment Association (CWEA) annual conference in Sacramento. In order to increase collaboration and hands-on learning, Roseville’s Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant hosted one of the conference days on-site that consisted of several instructors, volunteers, and multiple demonstration stations.

Industry professionals were able to visit each station to learn about the city’s treatment processes, moving away from traditional classroom-type learning. This new addition to the conference was named the School of Solids.

Check out here to learn more about how the School of Solids created a positive impact on the industry.
