WCA Marina Dock Substructure Engineering Assessment, Monday August 19, 2019

On Monday August 19, 2019, engineers will inspect the underpinnings of the WCA Marina dock and bulkheads to assess their structural integrity.  The marina complex was installed in 1989 and the goal of the assessment is to try to estimate the remaining life expectancy of the infrastructure, which is currently slated for replacement in 2025.  It is believe that the inspection will be complete on Monday, but the possibility exists that the inspection might extend into Tuesday.

July 26-27 Tree Removal Status Update

North Shore Red Oak
All threatening upper branches have been removed from the premises.  The North Shore Red Oak trunk will be removed by crane and log truck as soon as it is practical to do so.

Marina Red Oak
Fallen branches and the most threatening upper story branches were removed according to plan on July 26th.  However, during that process the arborist in charge found extensive borer damage throughout the canopy of the Marina Red Oak and determined that it was not safe to proceed with the removal using the planned rigging.  Alternative removal options and their costs will be presented to the board this week.

UPDATE#2: Trash collection service today postponed until July 22, 2019

In the Good New-Bad News Department: Without prior notice, Republic Services sent a crew to Wateview Cluster to collect trash this morning, Saturday July 20th.  That worked well for Orchard Lane because most of the homes make use of large communal trash bins and those trash bins remained at their pickup locations.  Alas, the responsible citizens who returned their full trash containers to their homes will have to wait until Monday for the next collection date.
20190720 1018

Republic Services has just now reported that it WILL NOT collect trash today.  Service will resume on Monday, July 22, 2019.  The board has lodged an official complaint.  Residents may register dissatisfaction by calling Republic Services Customer Service Department, 703-818-8222, then select Menu Option 3.
20190719 1343

Republic Services states that they will make up today's missed collection service tomorrow, Friday July 19, 2019.  No explanation was offered for today's failure or for the missed yard waste pick-up on Wednesday July 18th.
