Tree Removal

Hello neighbors,

This extremely gusty wind is taking a toll on some of our trees.  For those of you in the upper Waterview area, a large pine tree fell at about 11:00 this morning, blocking the parking lot and cars from getting in or out.  Care of Trees arrived within 20 minutes and is currently clearing the tree so cars can get through.

Thank you to Karen Noel for seeing the tree and calling Care of Trees immediately.  We're grateful too that Care of Trees could come so quickly.  Being a priority customer in times like these is one of the reasons we enjoy working with them.

Dominion Energy Project on Orchard Lane

On January 29, 2018 Dominion Energy is expected to resume their project to replace a pad mounted switch with a new VFI pad mount switch (at Orchard Lane entrance to Waterview Cluster), remove a pad mount transformer (adjacent to 11400 Orchard Lane), and replace underground cable that runs from the entrance area along the property line between Waterview Cluster and Lakeside Cluster to the 11400OL-11408OL block.  Utility markings are in place.  The work is necessary to ensure the reliability of electrical power to that block and was supposed to have been completed last August, but was delayed for unknown reasons.

Stream Renovation Update

Lake Anne West-
TDS (1 Crew until stream completion and additional crews as needed for bridge and trail paving)
Stream Completion- Week of 2/5
Bridge and Asphalt Trail- 2/12-2/16
Planting- After stream completion 2/12- with the deadline 3/31
Notes:
  • I will request permission for paving access from upstream trail entrance (Sunderbriar Cluster). Once we have a better idea of equipment and access we will coordination with Bud and Joe.
  • Damaged Verizon Communication Line- Repair underway (complete now). Line was not marked correctly. Unknown resident impact if any.
  • Additional measures (prescribed by Chris Fields-Johnson, Davey Institute) will be implemented in March 2018 on Black gum in Tributary 3 and White Oak in Tributary 2. Stream work should be done as soon as practicable to minimize impact.
  • Channel alignment may be adjusted in the field to minimize tree impacts.
  • Paver path leading to downstream bridge is being assessed by Karen and Charlie for replacement type. Currently the plan is to put back what is currently there.

Let me know if I missed anything or if you have any questions.

Winter Storm Preparations 03-January-2018

WCA BoD just received this notification from our snow contractor:

Good morning. I am writing to let you know that according to the National Weather Service there is the potential for hazardous commuting conditions for Thursday morning. As we go through the day I am sure we will have a clearer understanding of what will happen. Right now, based on this forecast and warning from NWS I am making preparations and planning on making a treatment to the paved areas of the cluster in the overnight hours of tonight.

I will post updates as warranted.
