While it's a little too early to think about frozen pipes, with the cold front coming in, consider these tips to ensure that your pipes remain in tact. Usually, consecutive cold days can cause issues with freezing pipes, and we don't expect that this week, but getting into the habit now or storing these tips for later can help you all winter long.
The crisp chill of fall is in the air, and with it comes the desire to cook comfort food. Roasted meats, vegetables and potatoes are fall favorites in many homes. With chicken, roast, and turkey that will soon grace our tables for a holiday feast, comes FOG. No, we’re not referring to the weather again; FOG is the industry term for Fats, Oils and Grease.
Water is too precious to use just once. That’s why Roseville blazed the trail to develop a “new” water source for a sustainable future. Roseville’s recycled water program, which started in the 1990s with a single commercial customer, has since grown to become an important and safe resource. Now, residents and businesses looking for ways to keep their landscapes healthy – especially high-valued trees – can now take advantage of recycled water.
We’re trying to save water while keeping our landscapes beautiful, and working together we can do it! Starting this January we host a 10-Week Green Gardening at Home Series. Both budding and experienced gardeners will learn ways to meet, and potentially exceed, their goals in reduced water use.
Way to go, Roseville! We reduced water use in October by 35.48 percent over this time two years ago. Continued savings still necessary to meet ongoing drought conditions and statewide water reduction targets.
In an effort to maintain financial stability and continue to deliver clean and plentiful water to Roseville water customers, Environmental Utilities is proposing changes to the water utility rate structure and is recommending a two-year rate increase. The proposal includes a change from tiered to uniform rates, increases in consumption rates to meet rising expenses, and the elimination of the 15 percent water shortage surcharge that took effect in June 2014. Roseville City Council will consider this proposal at its December 16 council meeting.
