Roseville Cuts Back on Water Use, Still Falls Short of 20 Percent Reduction Goals

Roseville Cuts Back on Water Use, Still Falls Short of 20 Percent Reduction Goals

The city of Roseville is highlighting how much it's cut down on its water usage, however, it's still not up to par with its neighboring cities.

Roseville is making more progress with how much water it's saving, reducing its water usage by 18.2 percent since January.

That is still shy of Governor Jerry Brown's call for a 20 percent reduction from all Californians. 

Other regions have been better at conserving water.

The Sacramento Department of Utilities reported residents cut back their water usage by 22 percent, compared with this time last year -- leading to more than a billion gallons of water saved during the month of July. 

However, Roseville is pushing to do better.

City officials are holding water saving workshops, with the next one scheduled this Saturday at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center.
