Re "Cut water at golf courses?" (Letters, Jan. 11): In response to Rebel Krecklow's letter asking what municipalities are doing to address water use on golf courses, here in the city of Roseville, we have made a multi-year investment in water recycling to prepare for the kind of record-breaking water challenges we face today. Through a consistent and considerable financial commitment, Roseville's wastewater treatment plant serves 870 million gallons per year of recycled water to golf courses, medians and parks in Roseville. This does not draw on Folsom Lake and is a product of prudent planning for the water situation we now face here in California.
