As of March 12th, 2011: It’s that time when the city of Frisco’s outdoor watering restrictions kick in.
Outdoor watering with a sprinkler system is not allowed daily between 5 and 8 a.m. and between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
According to the city, the restrictions are meant to reduce water waste during the heat of the day due to evaporation and high winds as well as offset the demand for indoor water use when residents are preparing for work and school.

After the heavy rains, the fountains were shut down to prevent them from “inhaling” any debris. They have been re-started and are running on their normal schedule.

Just an FYI. Our beautiful fountains are scheduled for cleaning and maintenance over the next few days. Going forward, if you see one of the fountains not spraying properly, please report it to the HOA so we can shut the fountain down to prevent it from burning out the pump (replacement pumps cost money!)
As one of the action items from the past annual meeting, one of the topics came up as to look into if our ponds needs to be dredged. The Board (with the help of SBB) contacted American Underwater Services. This company does dredging of all sizes all over the world and recently cleaned out “Dead Mans Hole” in Dripping Springs, TX.
American Underwater Services provided the survey at no cost to our organization. Marty, the company’s representative spent several hours on property (and his kayak!) and his report is as follows:
“…. After inspecting the lower pond in the stream system, I do not feel that dredging is needed at this time. Most of the pond has about 6 inches to 1 foot of sediment. The southern end of the pond has about 2 foot of sediment. Water depth above the sediment is 6 1/2 foot to 8 foot. ….”
With this information, the Board has decided NOT to dredge the pond. Plans to revisit the dredging topic will be scheduled to be re-visited in a few years.
