As part of the City of Roseville’s Flood Warning System, the City has installed numerous stream and rain gauges at strategic locations throughout the Dry Creek and Pleasant Grove Creek drainage basins to monitor the flood threat. The “Current Stream Levels” map provides the latest information used in monitoring the flood threat in the Dry Creek and Pleasant Grove Creek drainage basins.
While only about 7 percent of Roseville lies within a flood hazard area, most of this property is also zoned as “Open Space”, without any buildings located within the flood hazard area. Since 1986, the City’s development standards have not allowed new buildings to be built within the flood hazard areas. However, there are some areas along our creeks in the older areas of the city, primarily along Dry, Linda, and Cirby Creeks, where flooding would result in damage to properties.
The older parts of the City that are most vulnerable to the threat of flooding are best viewed on the Central Roseville Gauges map.
Roseville's Flood Warning System is designed to provide residents with up to a three hour advance warning of flooding within the city’s flood hazard areas. However, flooding can occur quickly and without much prior warning. Please follow the instructions and warnings as they are given, rather than delaying to see if flooding actually occurs.

Flood Warning Response and Notification
If a flood event should threaten these areas, warnings will be broadcast on Roseville's Government Access COR-TV Channels 14/73. If a power outage occurs, tune your battery-operated radio to AM530 or other local radio stations for information about the City of Roseville.
