Wastewater Treatment PlantPleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant Tours

Take a shower. Wash your clothes. Flush your toilet. You know where wastewater comes from, but where does it all go?

Join us at the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant for an insider’s look at how it all happens. The Wastewater Utility handles nearly 20 million gallons of water every day through more than 700 miles of pipe and treats it all at two treatment plants within the city, out of sight and mind for Roseville residents—all for about one dollar a day per household.

This free tour will give a behind-the-scenes look at the processes that make the system so reliable and that keep the environment and Roseville residents safe. From the point that wastewater leaves a home or business and enters the treatment process, follow the sludge through the plant to where it's released as clean water to local creeks or through our recycled water purple pipes for use to water our parks and golf courses.

After you’ve completed the tour, you will have a better understanding of the process for treating wastewater, and you will know what actions you can take to maintain the flow of this important utility system of the city.
