Snow Shoveling Courtesy
Once the snow shoveling season starts, please be kind to your neighbors, emergency responders, our delivery and letter carriers, and our visitors by not pushing snow into the streets. You may be shoveling after the final plowing. In that case, the snow will remain in the street to hamper drivers, refreeze or sit until it melts.
If a neighbor has cleared the sidewalk, the area around your mailbox or any of the fire hydrants, please don’t bury these areas when shoveling your walk, parking space or driveway. And please don’t shovel snow on to your neighbor’s property.
If you can, shovel out your nearest fire hydrant as a buried or frozen water supply delays firefighters in the event of a house fire.

REMINDER to Townhouse Residents...
Fire Pits & Chimeneas are Illegal
For townhome residents in Fairfax County, using ANY type of portable outdoor fireplaces, including fire pits, chimeneas or other forms of solid-fuel portable fire places are illegal per Section 307.4.3 of the Fairfax County Fire Prevention Code.
This law was created to reduce risk of house fires, property damage, occupant displacement, and personal injury or death from the operation or storage of portable outdoor fireplaces in or around townhouse structures. Potential fire risks associated with misuse of portable outdoor fireplaces is high. A popping ember, an unattended fire pit or improper disposal of leftover ashes can result in accidental ignition of a deck, patio, furniture, or vegetation that could start a fire that burns not just your townhouse, but several of your neighbor’s townhomes.
For violators, Fairfax County can assess a fine up to $2,500 and up to 12 months in jail, or both for each violation.
This law does not apply to single-family homes, but single-family homeowners are reminded to use any fire source safely and responsibly and always have a fire extinguisher nearby.

Please Break Down Boxes for Recycling
Please do not place large boxes that are not broken down and flattened next to your recycling bin for pick-up.  Please break them down flat and place them in your recycling bin.  If you have more boxes than can fit into your recycling tote, please flatten all of them for easier handling by our hard-working trash  collectors.

Good Neighbor Parking...
Can You Park in your Driveway?
With more people at home due to Covid, we ask all residents to please be a good neighbor and fully utilize ALL of their private parking spaces, including your garage and driveway BEFORE parking your vehicles in our limited number of guest parking spots. 
We thank you for your neighborly cooperation.

Water's Edge News
New Mailboxes Installed
New mailboxes have been installed in Water's Edge, replacing all old boxes. A couple mailboxes had already been replaced with similar boxes to the new and more secure cluster boxes that were just installed. In addition, these new boxes also have a parcel locker for smaller packages.
If you have a package delivered to the parcel locker by the letter carrier, they will leave the key to the locker in your mailbox. Simply insert that key into the parcel locker and your package can be retrieved. The key will remain in the locker once it is inserted.
New mailbox keys were distributed to all residents.

Volunteer to Help
The Association is looking for several volunteers for help out on a couple committees:
  • Architectural Review (ARC)
  • Landscaping and Grounds
  • Social
  • Website & Newsletter
The community needs a couple people for the ARC and the Landscaping and Grounds Committee to keep our community looking good and property values high.  It's also tough to create a "sense of community" without getting to know your neighbors so a social Committee is needed to help people get out and meet their neighbors on a social basis, plan a few friendly events and get people involved.  And lastly, the website and expanded newsletter won't create itself without a few volunteers for the Website and Newsletter Committee helping write and edit our resident communications.
If you would like to volunteer for a committee, and WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Please use the Contact Us form and send your message directly to the specific committee.  You may also complete the Committee Volunteer form and submit it directly to SCS.  The form is located on the Forms & Documents page.
