It is important to note that there has been $20 million worth of flood control improvements made in Roseville since 1995 when 358 structures were flooded. Roseville is now the only city in the nation that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has rated Class I for flood control. This rating reflects the City’s strong flood-protection efforts and ensures a 45 percent discount in flood insurance rates to residents. In addition, improved development standards and more accurate floodplain modeling have ensured that structures built in Roseville since the 1980s have not incurred flooding problems related to creek levels.
