Water Quality Reminder:  Little Things Can Enhance Our Water Quality

Stormwater runoff with excessive amounts of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers is a significant threat to the quality of our water.  Please take the following steps to protect the water quality in our lakes and streams:

  • Limit the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
  • Do not apply fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides if heavy rain is predicted.
  • Rather than broadcasting herbicides, spot treat only those areas that contain weeds.
  • Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural state with trees and other native vegetation that require little or no fertilizer.
  • Properly dispose any unused pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Do not dump unused fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides down a storm drain.


CONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATES

Lake Peachtree Is Refilling

As of last week, Lake Peachtree was at five feet below full pool.  The lake has been in “refill” mode since August (it takes about one inch of rainfall to fill the lake by one foot, and a small amount of water must always be released to maintain Flat Creek below the lake.  September’s average rainfall is usually between four and five inches).  Crews continue to on the path connections to the new bridge and the landscaping/stabilization of the area. 

Utility /Right-of-Way Projects

REMINDER:  Utility work takes place in City-owned Right-of-Way or Utility Easements.  Please do not threaten contractors – they are allowed to work in this area whether you personally want the service or not. While it may be your “yard,” it is not your property.  Contractors will restore grass when done in the neighborhood –Residents should water new grass seed/sod after installation (the utilities do not return to keep grass seed/sod watered).  No one should have private sprinkler systems or electric dog fences in the public right-of-way, but if you do, please mark them when you see other utilities marked in your yard.  Utility contractors are not responsible for restoring these items, and locate services (811) will not know about them to mark them.
