Roseville and Placer County Water Agency strengthen regional water supply reliability
The Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) and the City of Roseville signed a new agreement last month to ensure water is available to serve the needs of existing and growing communities.
“With our partnership with PCWA and our agreement with the US Bureau of Reclamation for federally supplied drinking water, we can make sure our residents and businesses have the water they need," said Roseville Mayor Bruce Houdesheldt.
The new contract makes it easier to deliver water between PCWA and Roseville, an important step in meeting the increasing need and taking care of the water resources in our region.
Roseville continues water conservation as snowpack and reservoirs thrive
With plenty of water in our reservoirs thanks to the winter rains and snowpack, Roseville is moving from a drought stage to a basic water conservation stage.
"Even though the drought is over for now, we still want our customers to use water efficiently, given the changing water supply conditions we’ve experienced over the years," said water utility manager George Hanson.
Here are some simple steps you can take to make a difference:
Maintain a three-day-a-week watering schedule
Replace older sprinklers with high-efficiency rotary nozzles
Check for indoor leaks
Take advantage of rebates for upgraded toilets and water-wise landscaping

Flashing yellow arrow signals help keep traffic moving
No more waiting at a red light to turn left when it's clear to go. To assist drivers, traffic signals with flashing yellow left turn arrows will be installed at the following intersections:
Northbound Fiddyment Road at Hayden Parkway is anticipated to be completed by July
PFE Road at Hilltop Circle is expected to be complete the week of June 26
These intersections are proven to be more efficient and reduce unnecessary vehicle idling. When the yellow arrow flashes, cautiously enter the intersection to make your turn after yielding to oncoming traffic and bicyclists.
