Roseville Encourages Water Reduction


SHARE with Friend




City officials in Roseville have issued the following in response to the persistent dry conditions impacting water supplies.

As a community we are facing one of the driest years on record. The water level of Folsom Lake, Roseville's primary water supply source, is at a historic low.

To help Roseville achieve sustainability in the upcoming months we are asking our community to voluntarily reduce residential and commercial water use by 20 percent. Our customers' efforts to conserve during these dry times is critical in helping us maintain our already low water supply.

Valuable tips, how to videos, rebate information and educational material can be found online and for updated conditions of Folsom Lake Frequently Asked Questions.

Join in our effort to reduce our use by following these simple steps:

1. Turn off outdoor irrigation and only water if plants become stressed - Outdoor irrigation can account for up to 60% of your total water use.

2. Check for leaks - Drips and breaks can waste hundreds of gallons of water each day. Check out the "how-to-videos" for more information.

3. Monitor your water usage online  - Residents can create an account and start learning about their family's water use today.

4. Schedule a Water Wise House Call - Let our H20GUY analyze your water use and provide you with water savings tips and devices free of charge.
Schedule your appointment today online  or by calling (916) 774-5761.

5. Commercial customers can schedule a Water-Use Review - We'll perform a thorough assessment of indoor and outdoor use to identify inefficiencies and make recommendations for improvement. Call (916) 774-5761 to schedule your appointment today.

6. Report water waste online  - Your eyes are essential in helping the Efficiency Division identify potential problem areas and educating our residents about unnecessary water waste.Thank you Roseville for doing your part!
