Protecting Groundwater

Protecting our Groundwater

As you get ready to start spring yardwork, please do your part to protect the city’s groundwater. The chemicals you apply to the lawn can seep into groundwater and run off into the storm sewer system. Only buy fertilizers with the chemicals your lawn needs, and only buy enough to use for one season. To find out what chemicals you may need for your lawn, test your soil. The University of Minnesota Extension tests soil for a nominal fee. For more spring yard tips read more.

Unused Prescription Medications

In the March 5 Roseville Review, the Roseville Library recommended that residents contact the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) about disposing of unused prescription medications. Ramsey County and the City of Roseville offer additional options. Roseville police officers and firefighters have free medication disposal bags available for residents to dispose of small quantities of medication. The bags contain activated carbon that neutralizes medications and prevents it from contaminating groundwater. Read more
