WINTERIZE EXTERIOR WATER FAUCETS:
All exterior garden hoses must be disconnected from your outside faucet. The exterior faucet should be shut off on the outside and on the inside (if you have an interior water shut off valve), needs to be turn off. There should be no water dripping from the outside.
If you need any help with this, please contact the office. Connected garden hoses and improperly winterized exterior water faucets can cause the pipe to the faucet to freeze and break during extremely cold temperatures.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has classified trick-or-treating as a higher risk activity and is advising that trick-or-treating be avoided to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
In light of this guidance from the CDC, Chapel Hill does not endorse door-to-door trick-or-treating this year and encourages all residents to avoid traveling from door to door seeking treats and to avoid distributing any treats.
Our contractor, Armstrong Masonry, will be performing tuck pointing and porch cap replacement. This work is to be done in mid to late October. If your porch is scheduled to be replaced we will be contacting you before the work occurs.
Building painting will continue through October.
Did you know that less than 1% of all the water on Earth can be used by people? The rest is salt water or is permanently frozen and we can’t drink it, wash with it, or use it to water plants.
As our population grows, more and more people are using up this limited resource.
Simple Ways to Save Water
Turn off the Tap!
Just by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime, you can save up to 8 gallons of water! That adds up to more than 200 gallons a month, enough to fill a huge fish tank that holds 6 small sharks! The same is true when you wash dishes. Turn off the tap!
Taking a shower uses much less water than filling up a bathtub. A shower only uses 10 to 25 gallons, while a bath takes up to 70 gallons! If you do take a bath, be sure to plug the drain right away and adjust the temperature as you fill the tub.
Fix That Leak!
Fixing a toilet leak is a great way to reduce household water use and boost water conservation. If your toilet has a leak, you could be wasting about 200 gallons of water every day. That would be like flushing your toilet more than 50 times for no reason! Try this experiment: test for leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color shows up in the bowl without flushing, you have a leak!
