We Are Roseville - August 23, 2022


Placer Alert

Emergency notification testing this Thursday

On Thursday, August 25, Roseville along with 12 other cities, 3 Counties and 1 Tribal Nation will exercise the Regional Mass Notification System. The primary objective of this exercise is to test the Regional Mass Notification system’s capability, capacity and effectiveness to deliver emergency notifications to the public during times of a major disaster. 

The test will be inclusive of those that have opted into the local Emergency Alert system (cell, landline and email) and the residential landlines in the 911 data system. The test alert will display on phones as 833-422-5253 – residents can now save this number in their phone as “Emergency Alert” so they recognize critical alerts. 

The test will also use the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) System, a federal emergency system that uses geographically drawn boundaries to alert people in specific areas. A WEA alert causes cell phones to vibrate and omit a different tone than a ringing phone - much like an Amber Alert.

Watering days shift to two days per week 

Watering days will shift from three days to two days per week on September 1 to manage ongoing drought conditions. The new schedule lasts until October 31.

Residential customers can water on Mondays and Fridays. Commercial customers can water on Mondays and Thursdays. Customers using drip irrigation are not subject to watering days.

Surcharge workshop

Meeting dates to discuss proposed energy surcharge

These are challenging times for the electric utility industry, especially here in California. Our state is grappling with unprecedented drought and a substantial reduction in hydroelectric resources in addition to skyrocketing fuel prices. These factors are causing a significant and rapid increase in costs.

Roseville Electric is proposing a temporary surcharge to address these challenges. This approach gives us more time to understand if the energy price spikes we are currently experiencing is transitory or part of a more durable trend in the energy markets. Join us to learn more at one of two public outreach workshops at the Roseville Customer Service Center at 116 S. Grant St. 

  • 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 30
  • 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 6

Happy National Water Quality Month

National Water Quality Month reminds us of the value of clean, high-quality water –  and how to protect it. We source your drinking water primarily from surface water resources at Folsom Lake that comes from snowpack from the Sierra Nevada mountains. We also use groundwater to ensure we have a go-to resource no matter the water supply conditions.

Our detailed annual water quality report describes how we test your water and ensures that it meets – and exceeds --  both state and federal standards.

Check out our latest report to learn more about drinking water and water sources.
