Approximately 2 acres of nonfunctional turf at Crestmont Park, Roseville Electric Utility and the Roseville Corporation Yard is scheduled to be replaced with drought resistant landscape saving 6.9 million gallons of water annually. Areas that are primarily aesthetic and not used for passive or active recreation such as sports games, picnics or playing catch are considered nonfunctional turf.
Frigid temperatures can cause one of winter's worst woes - frozen water pipes. Property owners and residents can take some simple precautions to prevent the inconvenience and expense of frozen water pipes.
Starting January 5, 2015 many residents and a few businesses will have new trash pickup days. This change is necessary to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Customers can now sign up to receive automatic email or phone reminders.
We are working on a utility rate study that includes long-term forecasting of operational expenses to determine if the current rates are sufficient to cover the costs of providing water, wastewater treatment, and solid waste services. Once we crunch the numbers, which is real soon, we will ensure that residents and businesses know what the study reveals. Information will be updated on our Rates page.
With the return of the cold weather we tend to see an increase in fires related to ash from fireplaces and outdoor fire pits that were improperly disposed of in refuse cans and the city’s open space.
These fires have caused both structure fires and have lead to fires starting inside of refuse trucks. Fires in refuse trucks usually cause major damage to the truck, endanger the driver and in many cases will require the replacement of the truck.
