4 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Background Background  Urban development continues to occur in the Pleasant Grove Creek drainage area  Pleasant Grove Creek drains almost half of Roseville’s land area (16 of 32 square miles)  Pleasant Grove Creek flows west through Sutter County, much of which is in a floodplain  Sutter County has opposed increases in storm water runoff caused by upstream development

5 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Background Background  The increase in the 100-year storm water surface elevation in Sutter County caused by upstream development in south Placer County is estimated to be about 1.2 inches  Development in Roseville contributes less than 0.25 inch  In 1991 Roseville adopted a developer-paid drainage fee which has so far raised $13 million

6 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Background Background  Roseville gave Sutter County the choice of either taking the money and building their own flood management facilities or the City would build its own retention facility  Sutter County decided to let Roseville build its own facility

7 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Proposed Project Proposed Project  Project to be constructed on about 1,750 acres of farmland and open space downstream of Roseville  Primary project purposes: flood management, ecosystem restoration and recreation  Total project cost is about $20 - $27 million

8 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Flood Management Flood Management  Mitigate all downstream water surface increases resulting from development in the Pleasant Grove drainage basin in Roseville  Two retention basins (about 2,500 AF combined storage capacity)  Estimated frequency of storing water in the basins is estimated to be once every 15 to 30 years

9 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Ecosystem Restoration Ecosystem Restoration  Wetlands  Vernal pools  Swanson hawk habitat

10 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Recreation Recreation  35 acre lake for non-motorized boating and fishing  Outdoor adventure area (climbing obstacle courses, archery and mountain bike training)  Pedestrian/bicycle/equestrian trails  Picnic areas  Campground

12 City of Roseville’s Reason Farms Environmental Preserve Project Status Project Status  About $13 million has been collected to date in developer-paid fees  CEQA documentation completed January 2003  Land purchased in 2004  South retention basin to be constructed in 2010  North retention basin to be constructed in 2017
