Roseville receives $8 million grant for two new groundwater wells
This financial infusion, thanks to the efforts of the Regional Water Authority and local water agencies, will help finance the development of two groundwater wells within the city by covering nearly half the cost. Roseville's share is part of a more extensive regional funding package totaling $55 million, dedicated to supporting essential groundwater infrastructure initiatives spanning the Sacramento region.
"We understand the critical importance of having a variety of water sources to ensure there's enough water for both our residents and the environment," explained Bruce Houdesheldt, Mayor of Roseville. "While the regional funding supports crucial groundwater projects across the area, it also enables Roseville to construct more groundwater wells, enhancing the reliability of our water supply for our growing community."
