The program requires 36 units of coursework and is attractive to faith leaders with busy schedules who seek an affordable and flexible program.

Change proposed to Roseville water utility rate structure


Changes could be coming to the way Roseville water customers are billed and those changes will likely mean paying more each month

Roseville planned to eliminate its tiered water system that charges higher rates to big water users. Instead the new system would charge everyone the same amount for each gallon of water used.

Another part of the proposal could increase customer fees. Starting in January 2016 the water bill for an average single family home will change from $26.81 a month to $32.33 a month.

Then in July of next year another increase to $36.25 each month.

There are two community meetings scheduled next week.

ROSEVILLE- Starting today, Roseville residents can only water one day a week. Residents will be able to water before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. on Mondays.

ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- Early next month, watering times in Roseville will scale back to just one day per week. This is all in an effort to continue to reach the city's water saving goal of 28 percent. 

The change will take effect on October 5th. City officials said residents can only water on Monday's before 10 am and after 8 pm. The restriction will stay in effect until April.

"We coach people into compliance,” Maurice Chaney with the City of Roseville said.

Warm temperatures kill 155,000 trout at California hatchery


GOLD RIVER (AP) - The California Department of Fish and Wildlife say it is working to keep hundreds of thousands of trout alive at the American River Hatchery after warm water temperatures killed about 155,000 trout.

The department said Wednesday a chiller that cools water at the hatchery about 18 miles east of Sacramento unexpectedly failed Tuesday, and warm temperatures killed most of the Eagle Lake species of trout being raised there. Why the hatchery equipment failed is under investigation.

It says trout require cold water to survive and hatchery staff is working to get a least one chiller working again to help the remaining 335,000 trout.

The department says the unexpected die-off could mean it will not be able to stock streams and lakes at an ideal level in the Sacramento region next year.
