EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION FROM AQUA (Our water supplier) September 8 — STILL IN AFFECT

We received notification from Aqua, that they had to shut down their Pickering East and West water treatment plants due to heavy rainfall, flooding and loss of power caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

We ask that all residents comply with the request from Aqua to help the system recover from the recent storm.  This is the notice we received directly from Aqua.

“This is a reminder that customers must discontinue all nonessential water use while we recover the water system from the remnants of Hurricane Ida. That means please take shorter showers, don’t run sprinklers, and minimize your use of washers and dishwashers until further notice. Every little bit helps you and your community. Please help us while we recover the water system.

Aqua is adjusting in other parts of our southeastern Pennsylvania water system to increase supply to our Pickering service area, but it will take time to offset the volume of water we normally produce at this plant. There is the potential for some customers to experience discolored water as we redirect water throughout our distribution system to sustain capacity.

Second, please be aware that our toll-free customer service number is currently out of service due to flood-related issues experienced by our phone vendor.

NO VAN SHUTTLE TODAY

Due to a staff shortage, the van will not be going out today at noon. We hope to have it running again tomorrow.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

POOL – (1ST SHIFT) NO LIFEGUARD

Our pool company, just like everyone else, is having issues with staffing. It is harder this time of year as the college and high school students return to school. It makes it difficult for them to have enough coverage for every shift at all the pools they manage.

We were notified yesterday by IM Pools, that they would not have a lifeguard for the 1st shift today. The lifeguard will be onsite from 3:30 pm until closing, weather permitting.

We are grateful for the early notification so our volunteer pool monitors can fill in until the lifeguard arrives. Unfortunately this means that residents will not be able to bring guests to the pool until 3:30 pm today.

We thank you for your understanding and we sincerely thank all of our volunteer pool monitors that give their time to ensure the pool is open for residents to enjoy.

Any questions, please contact the Management Office.

BIKE ROOM CLEAN OUT — UNIDENTIFIED BIKES

The staff finished cleaning out the bike room today and in doing so, found a few higher end bikes that do not have stickers anywhere on the bike. The bikes are still in the bike room, and marked with yellow caution tape so they can easily be seen.

We ask that residents check the bike room to see if the bike might belong to you. It is possible that a sticker fell off without your knowledge. We do not want to donate any bikes that actually belong to someone.

Any remaining bikes that are without stickers by Friday, August 27, will be donated to a charity.

We also found bikes that are clearly not being used and haven’t in some time. We ask that residents remove unused bikes from the bike room at your earliest convenience so your neighbors may have a chance to put their bike in the storage room.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation in this matter. Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.
