TOA Doggy Stations Coming Soon!
Posted on Jun 24th, 2016
The TOA board members have decided to give Doggy Stations a 1-year trial.  If they work out, we'll continue the service.  The plan is to install 3 stations in The Commons and 3 in Walkers Glen.  Look for them during the first week of July.  If the locations aren't the best, we'll move them. The picture attached isn't an actual picture of what we ordered, but it will give you a good idea of what to expect.  
 
No Parking No Standing Signs Added to Shumacher Avenue and Moss Farm Street
Posted on Jun 22nd, 2016
The City of Concord investigated an issue The Commons had when the middle school had big events. People parking on the corner of Moss Farm Street and Shumacher Avenue were making it very difficult to negotiate the turn.  It was a safety issue and the city recognized it and was quick to respond.  The city recently erected No Parking No Standing signs for the section of Shumacher Ave. from Moss Farm Street to Burrell Avenue.  Some residents wanted additional signs, but posting any additional sections of street would adversely affect residential lots during “non- school” time periods.  The TOA board members want to specifically thank Joe Wilson and the City of Concord for addressing this safety concern in a very timely manner.  If you see people parking in that zone, please report it.  
 
 
BSA Troop 220 Paints Fire Hydrants in TOA Areas
Posted on Jun 6th, 2016
Thanks to BSA Troop 220, this past Saturday, we now have a fresh coat of yellow paint on eleven fire hydrants in the The Commons and Walkers Glen areas. The scouts arrived at 1 p.m. on Saturday on one of the hottest days of the year.  They split up into two teams and used a wire brush to knock off the old rust and paint before painting.  The City of Concord, in conjunction with our Concord Fire Chief, provided the two gallons of paint, wire brushes and paint brushes.  They had their Scoutmaster out there, along with Assistant Scoutmasters and an Eagle Scout. So, plenty of adult supervision along the way.  Thank you BSA Troop 220!
 
House Fire in Wellington Chase RE: Donation Link
Posted on May 25th, 2016
 
Kimberly Koop setup a link to help raise money for an amazing family who just lost their home in a fire.  This family lives in Wellington Chase and has 3 boys.  The children are in 1st, 5th, and middle school.  This morning their house was set on fire by an 11 year old for some unknown reason.  The house is unsalvageable.  So this family has lost almost everything.

Above and beyond this terrible event the mother just got out of the hospital.  She spent over a month recovering from surgery.  She almost died from a brain aneurysm. The children actually had to say goodbye to their mother because the doctors thought that she wouldn't survive.

Please donate funds so that they can purchase some items to get them by during this devastating time.  Please also keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

If you have any items that you can donate please let Kimberly know.

Irrigation Season 2016
Posted on Apr 1st, 2016
Irrigation season begins on April 18th. Remember- irrigation systems NEED REGULAR MAINTENANCE. This includes cleaning out your valves and filter (if you have a filter). It is each single-family Homeowner’s responsibility to make sure his/her personal irrigation system is in compliance with Community standards and we hope every resident would take advantage of this great amenity by making sure their system is working.
These are KEY details for a properly operating irrigation system:

Irrigation Updates
Click here to view the new Google map to locate your irrigation zone! (Thanks Rick Hocutt!) Or search this list of addresses by zone to learn your zone and valve #.
Irrigation is far and away the most frequent concern our residents voice to the management company.  Moss Creek's is an extremely complex irrigation system, and when a part of it malfunctions it is critical that Kuester is informed quickly. 
Season 2016 System UPDATES:
6/16 Thurs- In phs 2, A wire repair was made reconnecting power to valves 10 & 13 in Zones P & Q. The only other known issue is valve 24 in zone V. the part is ordered abd repair can be made next week.  
5/31 Tue- All irrigation will be shut down for the remainder of today and tomorrow. Repairs are being made to 2 wells and phase 1 is at a critical low on water. We are also postponing the test day that was scheduled for tomorrow. We will announce the make-up test date as soon as it is determined. 
5/17 Tue- We are on a 72hour irrigation hold due to rain. Phs 1 - all wells are down due to power issue- Electrician to trace wire to locate cause.  Phs 2- all zone O is completely operational. Valve #18 (in zone T) is down- parts ordered for replacement. 
5/9 Mon- Phs 1 pump stn update: foot valve was replaced on Friday and pump 1 is still not operating at full capacity. The irrigation manager has removed the pump to take it to the pump contractor to be tested and and hopefully repaired. If not it will have to be replaced. Some zones will still be able to receive water normally, but there still wont be enough psi to get full pressure at the higher elevations in zone 1 until the second pump is fixed. 
Zone O in phs 2- power surge or lightening strike during last week's storms damaged wire rendering the zone inoperable. All decoders for the zone were replaced, they are now tracing the wire to locate the problem.  
5/2 Mon- 3"+ of rain have activated the rain sensors for 72 hours (until Thurs)for ALL of the community. Phs 1 pump station update: low pressure issue was caused by a broken foot valve and filter. At high pressure during the regular watering schedules, not enough water was able to flow into the pumps to allow the system to run properly. The parts are on order and we hope to have phs1 up and running by Thursday or Friday. 
4/28 Thurs-  Phase 2--valve 16 was repaired. Valves 13+14(Q), 18(T) & 28(W) are improperly functioning and parts are due in by 1st of next week. Phase 1--one of the 2 pumps in the pump stn is not working fully- thus the cause of the low pressure some residents are reporting. Tri-State pumps is scheduled tomorrow afternoon to diagnose and hopefully repair on site. We will continue to run the pump stn but those in large zones or higher elevations will experience low pressure until the 2nd pump is repaired. 
4/26 Tues- Valve 16 in zone R was repaired. 
4/25 Mon- Phs 2--The irrigation manager tested zone Y again and reset the program. 
Valves 4 and 29 are back up. Valves 16(R), 18(T) and 28(W) are down- likely the whole valve will need to be replaced- parts are on order. (if you are not sure what VALVE # you are in see the list of addresses by zone/valve# document). 
They are still finishing the re-testing of zones U and V. 
All phs 1 is working. 
4/22 Friday- Zone E- The irrigation manager further investigated the zone E components and discovered that the solenoid was only partially functioning- not allowing the full water flow to enter the sub-main. He received the part today and it will be fixed today. Zone D- low pressure has been reported by several residents. The irrigation manager is investigating. The crew is re-testing all of phs 2 zones and any issues reported. Any specific issues and repairs will be posted here. 
We have recorded .63" of rain fall so far today, so rain sensors will turn the system off.
4/19 Tues- Phs 1 pump stn blew a hose around 4:30pm 4/19. Pump stn was turned off to stop the rush of water- therefore irrigation for phase 1 could not run that night.  The part was replaced this morning and the station is operable again. Phs 2- program malfunction at the start of the evening run. Irrigation manager returned to property last night at 9pm to reset- after that, all zones in last night's phs 2 schedule should have operated appropriately. 

Remember, the HOA is only responsible for getting water to your curb.  Anything beyond the curb, including timers, sprinkler heads, etc. is the responsibility of the homeowner (excluding Townhome Owners).  The Irrigation Manager’s focus is on the maintenance of the common areas and making sure the system is running properly during the scheduled times and the common grounds are being watered appropriately.
Proper timer programming is crucial to the functionality of the system and it is your responsibility to make sure your timers are set correctly. The clock/timer that you have in your garage is intended to facilitate the opening of your irrigation system on your Lot to the sub main during the specified hour that the timer is set for. This time should coincide with the time that the irrigation zone you live in runs.  First, make sure your timer is set properly and it still has its programming. If you are unsure about how to program your timer, check the owner's manual or consult with an independent landscaper. Many timer instruction manuals are available online.
Then, find your valve box in your yard that houses the electric valves that man your individual zones on your Lot.  There will be one valve per zone in your yard. Make sure that these electric valves are all turned off. You may have your clock set, but with these valves turned in the ON position, the clock is being bypassed and not operating according to its purpose. To turn your system from manual setting to clock function, you must turn off the irrigation valves in the valve box in your yard. If the valves will not turn any further to the right, they may need to be unscrewed and rinsed out. Dirt and mulch can get inside the workings and cause them to stick open (thus allowing your system to come on anytime during the day the HOA pressurizes the sub mains at the street). Being that Moss Creek’s irrigation system uses ‘dirty’ water or unfiltered well water instead of city water, there is regular system maintenance that is required to keep your system working properly- cleaning your filter and valves. You should do this at least once or twice a season. In addition, you must make sure that your system only operates one zone in your yard at a time during the hour of scheduled irrigation. The main system is designed to provide a total of 600 gallons of water to each lawn, spread over a one-hour time frame For example, if your irrigation system has 4 zones, you will need to set your clock to run each separately -for say 15 minutes each. A good tip is to water side yard zones for less time and rotor zones longer and not to waste too much of your hour on any drip zones.  Broken heads are also a cause of much water waste. Please make sure that all of your heads are in working order. A broken head can waste as many as 25 gallons per minute!
Over-watering your lawn is not only wasteful, but it can lead to diseased turf and growth of fungi.  The system is equipped with turf-saturation sensors or rain sensors which will prevent the irrigation from being activated if the ground is saturated to a certain point. A ½ an inch of rain or more activates the system’s rain sensors. Do not over-compensate for a missed irrigation cycle by running multiple zones at once. This abuse of the system could cause you to lose your watering privileges or pay a fine.
The irrigation main lines and sub-mains are not usually pressurized during the daytime. To test or work on your system during business hours OR TO FLAG YOU IRRIGATION HEADS FOR AERATION, fill out the Irrigation Activation Request form on this website using this link or under the Irrigation tab. Note:  Irrigation inspections will be done each season. Every Homeowner must have their system running according to the Moss Creek  Please see Irrigation Resolution under the Irrigation tab. Irrigation Map and run times are also linked under the Irrigation tab on this homepage. Link to the FAQ page for contractor recommendations from other residents.
The irrigation season will end at the end of October- or as weather permits.
