The City is not requiring any mandatory water conservation measures but would like ideas from the community on how you can voluntarily help conserve water.  We can all do our part to lessen the effects of limited water supplies this summer.  We can start by conserving water we use today.  Check out the fact sheets link provided by the State of Oregon on how you can save water and let us know if you have other ideas to share.

While I think this is an ODOT rather than Roseburg issue, can an official municipal request be made that the I-5 exits 124 and 125 stop being irrigated. These areas use a great deal of water and have no functional purpose other than being aesthetically pleasing. plus, the water itself isn't free so there is a financial as well as an environmental issue. In the longterm it would be sensible to remove all of the lawn areas and plants that require maintenance and irrigation and replace them with drought tolerant native species. I'm glad to help out on such a project!

There is a product called "Soil Moist" that holds water in the soil rather than let it run off. The state may already use it at the exits. Folks that want to use it at home can get it in 10 oz. packs most any place that has garden supplies. Lowes has one pound units. [it's not cheap]
