    Planning for our water future

    Planning for our water future Maurice Chaney, City of Roseville Environment Utilities Department In the face of water supply challenges related to changing weather conditions and increasingly stringent state regulations, Roseville is continuing its initiatives of proactive, comprehensive planning to diversify water supplies and maintain a high level of reliability. Since the early days when the City assumed the water supply responsibility from Roseville Water Company, our work to grow our locally-produced water supply continues. For the past 20 years, we’ve proactively sought to increase water supply reliability by diversifying our sources of water and maximizing those supplies locally. Having all water infrastructure – water, wastewater, recycled water, stormwater – under one integrated utility service allows us to be more innovative and cost efficient because we can manage water resources at every stage of use. Despite growing our available local supplies through our partnerships with other water agencies, outside forces can still dictate how much water is allocated and used in the future. What’s clear is that ensuring water reliability for Roseville will require us to do even more to diversify, use water efficiently, and build water infrastructure under the City’s control. For these reasons, we are looking at a range of potential options that represent “best practices” from other communities. Integrated planning underway We are taking a long-term, holistic approach to plan our overall water strategy to serve our community through 2050, when our population will grow to nearly 300,000 residents. This approach to planning ensures we have a range of options that we can pursue based on their best potential for success – so which options provide the best return on investment from Roseville ratepayers and reduce potential threats in the future. We are starting this comprehensive effort now through our integrated water planning process because infrastructure projects take many years to evaluate and construct. Options to secure a water reliable future We’re exploring several options as part of our integrated water planning process for potential to increase water supply reliability and system flexibility, clear regulatory hurdles, and be delivered at a reasonable cost to ratepayers: Additional surface water: Roseville will continue to evaluate its ability to develop surface water supplies by participating in local and regional infrastructure projects to relieve overall pressure on water supplies for communities in our region. Groundwater banking: We are evaluating what steps we can take – consistent with new groundwater laws – to expand our ability to bank water in the groundwater basin so that it is available as another source when needed. Expanding use of purified water: Despite our successful water recycling program, used for irrigation, we only use about 20 percent of purified water. Work is underway to look at other best practices to maximize wastewater so that it can be put to beneficial use locally. Water-use efficiency: We will continue to partner with our businesses and residents to maximize efficient use of water through newer appliances and water-efficient landscapes. During the drought, Roseville residents reduced water use by more than 36 percent and adopted water-saving habits that will continue to provide water savings into the future.

    Trail Alerts & Information

    New trail segment opens in downtown Roseville A new portion of trail is now open between Folsom Road and Lincoln Street. This trail connects the existing Miner's Ravine Trail from Sierra College Boulevard to Royer Park. With next year's completion of the Downtown Bridges & Trail Project, the trail will continue further through Royer Park and on to Darling Way. This will result in a continuous 6-mile off-street trail through Roseville. Free public parking is available in the trailhead lot adjacent to Fire Station 1 on Lincoln Street. More spots are also located in the Vernon Street and Oak Street parking garages. Construction was funded with Transportation Development Act funds. No City of Roseville General Fund money was used on the project. Temporary closure on Pleasant Grove Creek Trail Drainage work has temporarily closed the South Branch of the Pleasant Grove Creek Trail where it passes under Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard. Please choose an alternate route. This trail segment is anticipated to reopen in several weeks. The remainder of the Pleasant Grove Creek Trail remains open. View a map of all trails and bikeways.

  11. December Project Update Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvements Watch the video above to learn the latest updates on the Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvements Project We’re making good progress on the Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvement project. While construction will continue through the holidays, businesses along Highway 65 in both Rocklin and Roseville will remain open and accessible for all your shopping needs! Construction crews working on the Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvements Project Improvements to this interchange will provide local and regional travelers better access to the Galleria Mall, Scandinavian Designs, and other businesses, making shopping in the area that much more convenient. “[This project] will also be a tremendous benefit to economic development in our region and to the economy as a whole. It will allow citizens in our area to spend less time sitting in traffic and more time with their families, at their jobs, or wherever else they might like to be,” said State Assemblyman Kevin Kiley. The local economy has already experienced a significant positive economic impact due to the construction project. More than 100 full-time construction workers are dedicated to keeping this project moving along and are at the construction site daily. This benefits our region as these workers are staying in nearby hotels, eating lunch and dinner in local restaurants, and shopping before and after work.  Catch up on the Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Improvements Project by watching our December project update video! Miss past project updates or looking for more information? Visit our website at www.8065interchange.org. Due to limited funding, the overall project will be constructed in phases. While PCTPA and project partners are moving forward on Phase 1, the time needed to complete the overall project could be up to 20 years – or more – depending on available funding. Stay up to date on construction and traffic updates by following @CaltransDist3 on Twitter and Caltrans District 3 on Facebook. This first phase of the Interstate 80 / Highway 65 Interchange Improvements Project will provide a third lane on northbound Highway 65 from Interstate 80 to Pleasant Grove Boulevard and make improvements to the Galleria Boulevard / Stanford Ranch Road interchange. The project is scheduled for completion in 2020. www.8065interchange.org Contact PCTPA at (530) 823-4030 ‌ ‌ ‌ Placer County Transportation Planning Agency | 299 Nevada Street, Auburn, CA 95603

Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn. • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of light strands to connect. • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. • Keep decorations away from windows and doors.

    Dry Creek Greenway West Project Updates

    Feedback from the online workshop and second open house More than 200 people shared their ideas at the second community open house and through the online workshop. This valuable feedback is being considered along with other criteria such as creek location, topography, safety, aesthetics, and land use impacts. A draft study that includes preferred trail alternatives will be available for public review in early 2019. VIEW A SUMMARY OF FEEDBACK. About Dry Creek Greenway West In collaboration with Placer County and the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, the City of Roseville is evaluating the possibility of Dry Creek Greenway West, a 3 mile multi-use paved trail between Cook Riolo Road and Riverside Avenue. This potential trail would ultimately connect with the proposed Dry Creek Greenway East (Riverside Avenue to Old Auburn Road), as well as trails west of Cook Riolo Road in unincorporated Placer County. The Dry Creek Greenway is just one of the trails in Roseville and Placer County's bikeway master plans. Funding for this planning and feasibility study is provided by a grants and other transportation-specific funds. LEARN MORE.
