Spring water system flushing in Shoreview

Spring water system flushing in Shoreview

The Shoreview Water Department reminds residents maintenance crews will be flushing the city’s water mains wbeginning the week of April 17. The entire system will be flushed during this annual procedure. It usually takes three weeks to complete.

Residents may notice discolored water for a short period, after nearby hydrants have been flushed. Although the water is safe for consumption, you may want to reschedule laundry or other work that may be affected by the discolored water. If the water is discolored, flush out your service pipes by running the laundry tub faucet or the outside faucets.

Making Roseville more pedestrian friendly

The City of Roseville is adding a sidewalk along Larpenteur Avenue from the Ramsey County dog park to Galtier Street to improve pedestrian safety and to connect the neighborhood. The half-mile sidewalk will connect to the rest of Roseville’s pathways and sidewalks.

The city is partnering with Ramsey County to add the 8-foot concrete sidewalk on the north side of Larpenteur. The city also received a Community Development Block Grant to help pay for the sidewalk. In addition to the new sidewalk, Roseville will complete storm sewer work to accommodate drainage in the area. 

Construction began the week of April 10. Work is expected to last up to eight weeks. Westbound Larpenteur will be reduced to one lane during construction. Use extreme caution when driving in the construction area. Contact project coordinator Dan Turner at dan.turner@cityofroseville.com or 651-792-7045 for more information.
