Tips to reduce your water use

With the current drought conditions, it's more necessary than ever to conserve water. There are many ways to reduce water use in the yard and your home.

Here are some helpful tips to maximize your water savings:

  • Check soil moisture before turning on sprinklers (saves 80 gallons/day)
  • Replace old sprinklers with more efficient rotary nozzes (saves 8 gallons/1,000 square feet/day)
  • Water plants early in the morning to reduce evaporation (saves 50 gallons each time you water)
  • Check and fix leaks inside your home (saves 30-50 gallons/day)

Protect your data at the ATM and gas pump

Recently there's been an increase in reported incidents of skimming devices in Roseville. Skimming occurs when devices illegally installed on ATMs, point of sale terminals, or fuel pumps capture data or record cardholders’ PINs.

Criminals use the data to create fake debit or credit cards and then steal from victims’ accounts. It's estimated that skimming costs financial institutions and consumers more than $1 billion each year.

Washington/Andora Widening August 2021

Construction on Phase 1 of the Washington Boulevard/Andora Widening Project continues. 

Crews will be performing nighttime work from 8 p.m. on Friday, August 27 through 4 a.m. on Saturday, August 28.

Between Diamond Oaks Road and Sawtell Road, temporary concrete barriers will be placed along the roadway to separate traffic from construction work.

Due to high daytime traffic volumes, this work is scheduled to minimize traffic backups. The road will remain open to vehicles, but a flagger will be directing traffic in alternating directions. Also, traffic signals will be flashing red at the intersections of Diamond Oaks/Washington and Sawtell/Washington.

Please travel with care in the work zone.
