Roseville, Minnesota is no stranger to the ravages of flooding. Whether from heavy, continual rains or subsequent rising water levels in tributaries or lakes, water has inundated basements and ground level floors and covered entire neighborhoods, parks, and streets. In both 2007 and 2011, Roseville residents experienced water and flooding damage that resulted in a need for flood disaster repair and restoration services.
