Recycled Water


Water RecyclingRecycled water is a clean and safe source of irrigation water conveyed through purple pipes in the ground. Recycled water is used in parks, medians and golf courses in Roseville. It's not for drinking, but it's perfect for irrigating grass, plants and trees. Best of all, its great for the environment because it lets us keep the grass and plants green without having to use drinking water. Purple pipes keep Roseville green.

Recycled water is produced at both of the City's wastewater treatment facilities. Recycled water has been treated to the highest level required by the California Department of Health Services and is approved for many uses, except drinking.  We provide recycled water to over 80 sites.
