Reminder: Red Leaf HOA Annual Meeting

Just a reminder about our annual meeting scheduled for this Thursday. Please send any questions you may have and we’ll answer them at the meeting.

Here are the details:

DATE: Thursday May 21, 2009
TIME: 6:30 pm
PLACE: Eagle Hills Elementary

Here’s the agenda for the meeting:

  • 2008 Financial Report
  • 2009 Budget
  • State of the HOA
  • Proposed Changes to CC&R’s
  • Presentation of candidates for HOA board
  • Election of Board of Directors

We encourage everyone to come to the meeting to discuss these important issues.

Most importantly, we currently only have two members of the board and in order to keep our non-profit status we have to have at least three members – and much better to have at least five members. Please consider offering your services to the community. We need you.

Water is On!

The irrigation water has been flowing well through the lateral for the past few days and we’ve turned on the pumps again (as of Wed.).

Water Problem Update III

There are two possible causes for the current water problems:

  1. There is a blockage at the front of the pipe or inside the pipe that runs under Eagle Rd.
  2. A gate was lowered in one of the boxes downstream from the Eagle Rd. box that is flooding.

The Spring Creek Manor people have inspected all of the boxes downstream and have confirmed that all of the gates are now fully open. The ditch master will be opening the headgate this morning to test that the problem has been solved. If the water still is backing up, our guess is that there is some sort of blockage in the pipe under Eagle Rd. and we will have to take steps to clear the blockage. Our coordination with the other landowners in the area should help defer the cost of doing this.

We’ll see how it goes today. Here are some photos I took yesterday:

Water Problem Update II

I met with Bob Hamilton of Clear Creek Crossing and Doug Clegg of Spring Creek Manor to look over the various boxes downstream from our water system. We cleared out a few pieces of wood, but nothing major is visible that might be blocking the irrigation pipes. We then notified the ditch manager to open up the water to our lateral for testing.

The results? More flooding onto Eagle Rd.

It appears that some water is getting through the system but there is enough of a backup to cause the box near Eagle Rd. to overflow. The water will be shut down again and we will do more investigating downstream looking for problems as well as pumping out the box near Eagle Rd. to try to spot some sort of blockage.

More updates as soon as I have them. Thank goodness for cloudy skies and rain in the forecast.
