Getting Involved in the Riverlake Community

This is your opportunity to showcase your expertise, energy, and talents to serve on a Riverlake Community Committee.  We are currently extending our annual recruitment opportunity for new volunteers to join a committee or for current committee members to sign up for another fantastic year.  Bernard Bowler, President, Riverlake Community Association (RCA), and Cal Gladden, President, Riverlake Lake Association (RLA) are offering you the opportunity to volunteer on one of our many committees where your talents and skills may benefit the Riverlake community.

City of Sacramento Water Schedule - New Schedule Begins March 9, 2014

Watering Allowed on TWO Days this Spring & Summer

The Sacramento region has been experiencing record-breaking dry conditions, and the Governor has declared a statewide drought emergency. While we still may experience some wet weather this year, it is unlikely to provide significant relief from the effects of two back-to-back dry winters.

Everyone needs to do their part to conserve water. Making small changes can save hundreds of gallons of water, keeping more in the rivers that make Sacramento unique.

Remember: Overwatering, ponding water and runoff (water running from yards onto sidewalks and gutters) is NEVER allowed.

Call 311 to report water misuse or for information about fee water wise services and rebates.
