We Are Roseville - August 10, 2021


August 10, 2021

Folsom Lake 2021

Roseville calls for mandatory 20 percent water conservation in anticipation of worsening drought

Water users throughout Roseville are now required to reduce water use by 20 percent.

Although the City has adequate supply to meet demands, continued drought conditions throughout the fall and winter will further stress water supply at Folsom Lake and throughout California.

As part of the mandate, Roseville is implementing landscape watering restrictions, including designated watering days.

Learn more about the restrictions and ways to reduce your water use.

Water planning

Learn how Roseville is working to diversify water supply sources

In effort to ensure long-term water reliability, Roseville is expanding and accelerating projects that diversify water supply sources, including:

  • Groundwater storage/recovery
  • New water delivery pipeline
  • Long-term agreements with U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Placer County Water Agency
  • Comprehensive planning for water recycling, future growth and infrastructure

Together with the current water conservation mandate, these investments will help meet demands during drought conditions now and into the future.

Learn more about these projects and Roseville's water planning.

Take care when using your recycling sites

Throughout the city are several recycling sites for cardboard, newspaper, and other recyclables. These sites are an essential community benefit to recycle additional material that might not fit in your trash and recycling bin at home.

Often we see these sites used to dump trash or recyclables are left outside of bins improperly, creating a mess for everyone. When this occurs, it requires a significant amount of city staff time to clean up—sometimes up to two hours daily in addition to checking and dumping bins.

Help keep our sites clean and tidy. For more information about recycling services, visit www.roseville.ca.us/recycling.
