The City of Roseville is a growing community on the outskirts of Sacramento, California. As lead agency for the South Placer Wastewater Authority it currently operates a regional wastewater treatment facility known as the Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (DCWWTP). The facility serves the City, rural portions of Placer County and the South Placer County Municipal District. In 1996 the City completed a Master Plan which predicted that ultimate build out flows for the service area would increase to 45.6 million gallons per day (mgd) over the next twenty years. More importantly, the Master Plan predicted flows would exceed DCWWTP capacity by the year 2002. To provide capacity for the predicted growth, the City has decided to construct a new 21 mgd regional wastewater treatment facility.

Master planning, designing, and constructing a new 21 mgd regional wastewater treatment facility is an uncommon event in recent times. Recognizing the impact of the opportunity, the City elected to make an effort to develop a project that met the needs of the entire community. This is the story of the City's visioning process to define the community stakeholders and determine stakeholders' needs in order to insure a successful project. The focus is on the needs of the environmental community, the regulatory community, operations and maintenance staff and management staff and how they were met.
