Roseville, CA
Date Completed:  2005
Services Provided:  Landscape Architecture
Owners:  Sacramento County Dept. of Transportation | City of Roseville Water Utility Department

Key Contributions:  screening of new water tanks from nearby residential backyards | mitigation of native oak tree loss | water conserving landscape

  3-phase expansion | 100 native oak trees encircling facilities | residential community within 50 ft of new water tank 

The Treatment Plant is surrounded by an upscale residential development, and includes hundreds of native oak trees.  The expansion required removal of over fifty oak trees.  Wherever feasible, native oak trees were replanted and California native plants were used to screen the water storage tanks.  The emphasis on native plants increased the habitat value and reduced the need for irrigation.
