Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance

Given recent legislation and state oversight of the City’s water conservation efforts, the Roseville City Council adopted a revised Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (WELO) on March 16th, 2016.  The revised Ordinance became effective on April 16th, 2016. The revised WELO responds to state legislation mandating stricter requirements for reducing landscape irrigation, water consumption and waste.  The WELO addresses the objectives of the Department of Water Resources model ordinance by incorporating the new water efficient landscape requirements into Chapter 14.18 of the Roseville Municipal Code (RMC).  You can find more information on the State’s current water efficient landscape efforts on the Department of Water Resources’ website here: .  

A FAQ sheet highlights the changes to the City’s Ordinance. The adopted ordinance can be found here.

The City has chosen to implement a tailored Ordinance which is designed to follow the City’s development review process.  Required forms for Landscape Plan submittal, Prescriptive Compliance forms for Single Family Home landscapes under 2,500 square feet, and Certificates of Compliance and Installation can all be found below.  For more information please contact the Planning Department at (916) 774-5276 or email at
