IRRRIGATION

The mainline reroute has been completed and normal Irrigation schedule will resume this evening.

A PO for approved decoder for zones 22-23 will be issued on Monday and the decoder will be installed on Monday.

LANDSCAPING & LIGHTING

Nothing to report at this time.

LAKES

The ponds are very LOW right now which is normal this time of year. The pond samples were gathered and recorded and even though they were slightly elevated TDS readings (TOTAL DISOLVED SOLIDS) recorded, the pond waters are within the parameters which are allowable levels to irrigate with. Rainfall is always welcome

LAKE FOUNTAINS

All of the fountains are displaying beautifully now. Both fountains #4 and #6 recently had the acid wash and jets cleaned to allow better fountain display. The intakes of these fountains had evidence of vegetation growth had been sucked up into the intakes causing poor display. Cascade Fountain Company were quick to respond and take care of these issues. Thanks to GMS for bringing Cascade on board to tend to our fountain maintenance, we can enjoy these wonderful displays.

STREETS & SIDEWALKS

Nothing to report at this time.

GATES & WALLS

Recently we were having an intermittent problem with the entrance gate at South Patrick. FDC was summoned here to check this occasional mishap, Originally I believed that there could be an issue with one of the relays not functioning on the mother control board, I thought that it could be malfunctioning because it would heat up and not operate. After investigating this intermittent problem it was found to be that the loop sensor that allows the gate to open had evidence of electrolysis at the connection going into the loop sensor, giving the gate a false reading that there was a vehicle in the traffic passthrough area, therefore not opening. This is a safety feature of the gate system. However after cleaning up the connections and checking the operation of the gate repeat ably, we were unable to see that issue repeat itself. I have been monitoring this South Patrick entrance gate and have not had this issue again. Brad the tech from FDC advised me that if this problem comes back then the loop sensor would have to be replaced. They are going to hold off on billing us for several weeks to see in fact that the loop sensor does not act up again, if so we will not get hit with another service call within that time frame.
