Lake Anne Treatment for Algae on Friday May 24

Blue-green algae also called cyanobacteria will be treated in Lake Anne by Reston Association’s aquatic consultants on Friday, May 24. They will be utilizing a boat with a gas powered motor for this activity. They will be treating the lake with a copper based algaecide to manage this growth. There are not any restrictions following the application. Residents can still fish and boat without restrictions. There also isn’t any restriction on pets drinking the treated water. However, there is concern for pets drinking lake water containing high levels of cyanobacteria. Remember that our lakes receive all of the areas storm water and are not regulated for consumption. These treatments are necessary to control the algae on the lakes and are conducted on a monthly basis throughout the summer.

In addition, you may have noticed a scum form on the surface of the water on our lakes. Our aquatic consultants were out monitoring the lakes last Friday and observed this as well. They stated these scums develop from the accumulation of pollen on the surface of the water as well as other floatables and runoff from the surrounding area. When the pollen is brought in during heavy rains it’s gets agitated and forms this scummy appearance. It should dissipate over time but there is no environmental concern.

Dominion Surveyors created a preliminary broad outline of the to-be-surveyed areas on the 29th.  They will review that data on Monday and be back to shoot in the improvements that are along the actual property lines later this week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday (April 2nd or 3rd).

Fairfax County PSA: Battery storage and disposal (March 2019)

Batteries 


So far this year, Fairfax County has experienced four battery-related fires.  In 2018, there were six fires caused by batteries.  As these numbers increase, so must awareness of the proper storage, recycling and disposal of all batteries.

STORAGE

Alkaline / single-use batteries (AA, AAA, 9V, C or D cell) should be stored using the following guidelines:
  • Keep in their original packaging
  • Store standing up
  • Use a battery storage container/organizer (designed to keep batteries secure/separate)
  • Never store batteries loose
  • Keep in dry storage area
  • Do not carry loose batteries in your pocket or purse
  • Cover terminal ends with electrical tape until ready to use
  • Do not toss batteries in a junk drawer with other metal objects

RECYCLING

There are four types of rechargeable batteries: lithium ion, nickel cadmium (ni-cad), nickel metal hydride and small sealed lead acid batteries (SSLA's under 2 lbs.)  These should never be thrown away, but instead recycled.  When damaged or exposed, these batteries pose a major fire hazard. 
Any rechargeable electronic device has a rechargeable battery.  Examples include laptop computers, remote control toys, portable power tools, video cameras, cell or cordless phones and walkie talkies.  After a certain number of uses, these batteries can no longer hold a charge and need to be recycled.
Additionally, damaged, defective and recalled batteries should be recycled.
Rechargeable batteries and any battery that has been damaged, deemed defective or recalled, can be recycled at one of the county's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Sites at I-66 Transfer Station and I-95 Landfill Complex.  Additional recycling resources include:
Batteries labeled with Alkaline that are single-use (AA, AAA, 9V, C, or D cell) do not need recycling.  Due to the Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Management Act passed in 1996 that phased out the use of mercury in alkaline batteries, single-use batteries are less of an issue when disposed in landfills.  However, all batteries could pose a potential fire hazard if under the right conditions.  Therefore, take the precautions listed in the next section for the proper disposal of single-use batteries.

DISPOSAL

When discarding Alkaline/single-use batteries (AA, AAA, 9V, C or D cell) in your household trash, follow one of these safety procedures before throwing them away to prevent an accidental fire.
  • Place a piece of electrical tape over both ends (+/-) of the battery.
  • Place batteries separately in a sealed plastic bag
  • Place batteries in their original packaging, sealed with tape.

WCA BoD seeks permission from RA to remove a tree from WCA common area: "WCA_RADRB-Application-Common_20190305-01"

The WCA Board of Directors has submitted to the Reston Association (RA) Design Review Board (DRB) a "Design Review Application" along with supporting documentation to justify the removal of a large, mid-1960's-vintage Silver Maple tree that is located in the cluster common area adjacent to the 11491-11499 Waterview Cluster row of townhouses.  The tree is not within a designated Chesapeake Bay Resource Protection Area (RPA).  

The WCA board asserts that the health of the tree has declined to the point that it represents a public safety hazard, as documented in writing by two independent arborists certified by the International Society of Arborists (ISA).  The WCA board requests permission from RA to dismantle the tree and thereby mitigate risks to persons and property.  

The WCA RA DRB application package is named, "WCA_RADRB-Application-Common_20190305-01", and is freely accessible to the public in a document repository at this link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AomQNOWv0kQyg5NFDP0qdsq51ZnRYQ

The digital files within the shared repository were created as separate Adobe PDF-format logical entities.  These individual files were then added to a single zipped archive file as well as a "jumbo" PDF file that contains all of the individual PDF's stitched together in proper sequence, to make them easier to manage as a single entity, if desired.

RE-POST:Republic Services Yard Waste Service Resumes on Wednesday March 6, 2019

Republic Services (RS) will resume yard waste pickup service on Wednesday March 6, 2019 and continue the service through December 24, 2019.

Collection is limited to 10- biodegradable paper bags, plastic bags, averaged sized containers, or bundles (or a combination thereof) per pick-up day. Brush and limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter, cut into 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with rope or twine and cannot exceed 50 pounds. Yard waste or bundles that do not meet these set-out requirements will not be collected. More than 10- bags and/or bundles of tied yard waste may be scheduled for a special pick-up at an additional charge. Republic Services does not collect dirt, bags of mulch, sod, rocks, open containers with poison ivy/oak/sumac, or uncontained brush with thorns.

If you have been hanging on to your Christmas Tree in the hopes of keeping it out of the regular solid waste stream, now is the time to unload it.  To be assured of pickup, the tree should be cut into 4-foot lengths (as is the rule for "yard waste"), however some RS customer service representatives have stated that RS will accept Christmas Trees up to eight feet in height.  For sure the tree must be devoid of all lights, ornaments, and tinsel.

LED Bulbs Accepted at Fairfax County Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites

LED LightLight-emitting diode bulbs are not accepted in curbside recycling bins; however, Fairfax County residents may bring LEDs to the county’s two household hazardous waste drop-off areas for recycling. The drop-off areas are located at the I-66 transfer station in Fairfax and the I-95 landfill complex in Lorton. LEDs are accepted free of charge.
LEDs have become the bulb of choice because they are more efficient than incandescent bulbs, but they often contain hazardous substances such as lead, nickel, silver, copper and arsenic. LEDs are not regulated as hazardous or universal waste by federal, state, or local regulatory statutes.  Unlike compact fluorescent bulbs which contain mercury, LEDs may be discarded as municipal solid waste, or regular trash.
In its continuing efforts to promote environmental sustainability practices, Fairfax County’s Solid Waste Management Program worked with its hazardous waste disposal vendor to begin accepting LEDs in 2019. This new recycling option exceeds current federal and state regulatory statutes for the disposal of LEDs.
