Welcome to the Water's Edge at Fair Lakes HOA Website

 
New Saturday Yard Waste Pick-up Day
American Disposal, our trash and recycling company,  will pick-up yard waste on Saturdays beginning Saturday, July 30th. This new service day will remain in effect until further notice.
 
 
     

Pet Waste Problems Continue
We Need Your Help
The problem of pet waste continues to be an issue in the community.  Several homeowners have brought to management’s attention that dog walkers are allowing their pets to do their business on private lawns and driveways.  This is necessitating homeowners and residents who do not even own dogs to pick up dog feces. 
 
 
If you walk a dog, please be responsible and keep your dog from doing its business on private property.  Direct the dog to a common area and, in any case, pick up your dog’s waste and dispose of in your own household trash.
 
Everyone who resides at Water’s Edge is asked to document to the extent possible the incidences of pet waste problems.  If possible, take a photo of the dog and walker.  Ask the walker to refrain from letting the pet relieve itself on any private property.  And, if possible, ask the person if he or she is visiting from a neighboring community or a Water's Edge resident. 
 
If the proper documentation can be made available about a particular incident or repeat offender, a report to the County may result in the pet owner incurring a fine up to $250 for violation of the county’s pooper scooper law. 
 
Pet waste left on the grass, concrete, or in the woods makes its way to storm drains every time it rains. Storm drains lead to lakes or streams that ultimately lead to the Occoquan Reservoir and the Potomac Rivers, our drinking water supply. Pet waste may carry disease-causing organisms, which make water unsafe for swimming and more costly to treat for drinking.
 
Additionally, dog waste on the ground is ugly and messy. It pollutes our environment even if it is hidden in bushes, under leaves or in the woods. 
 
So please pick up after your pets. Our collective health depends on it.
 
Thank you for your cooperation,
Water’s Edge at Fair Lakes Board of Directors

Trash Can Policy Reminder
Trash and recycling cans, as well as any other trash items should NOT be placed curbside until after 6:00 PM the evening before a scheduled trash/recycle pickup. Additionally bins need to be removed from in front homes by the evening of pickup.
 
Recently, the number of violations has been growing, with many residents regularly violating the community's policy.
 
In an effort to keep our community looking pleasant and enhancing our quality of life and property values, we ask all residents to adhere to this policy. Repeat offenders will be finned $25 for each occurrence.
 
Additionally, trash and recycling must be placed curbside in the HOA-provided trash container, or in a plastic or aluminum trash container specifically made for trash storage. Placing trash curbside in plastic or paper bags is not only a violation, but invites animals to scavenger and scatter trash as well as creating a community health risk.
 
Items for recycling should be placed in recycling cans with cardboard boxes (such as from Costco and Amazon) being broken down and placed into the recycling container.
 
We appreciate your cooperation.

Good Neighbor Parking...
Can You Park in your Driveway?
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 any vehicle in our limited number of guest parking spots.  This way we always have enough spots for overflow and our guests.
 
We thank you for your cooperation.

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.

Water's Edge News
ARC Guidelines Updated
Section 32 - Roofs and Shingles
The ARC Regulations (section 32) have been revised and reposted to the HOA website.
 
The newly added language is highlighted in red:
 
32.   Roofs and Shingles    
Replacement of roof shingles requires an application to the ARC, even if the color, style, size, and material are an exact duplicate of the original roofing material.  Only full roofing material replacement is allowed, i.e., no partial replacement will be approved.  Emergency replacement of single or several shingles or a small area is permitted that best matches the existing shingles upon approval by the ARC.    All homes and structures within the community shall only use roofing materials approved by the ARC.
 
The new ARC Guidelines are available on the Committees - Architectural Review - ARC page - ARC Regulations & Application Form section.

Trash & Recycling Update
Missed Collection??
Due to the ongoing shortage of trash and recycling truck drivers and pick-up helpers, missed or delayed collections are becoming common across NOVA. 
 
If American Disposal misses a pick-up, please leave your trash and/or recycling tote curbside for an additional 24 hours. Usually, American will reschedule any missed collection for the following day.
 
Additionally, since trash and recycling may be curbside for  longer periods it's critical that ALL trash, bags, boxes, etc. are securely in a trash or recycling wheeled tote, to avoid being susceptible to wind and being scatters around the community and onto your neighbor's property.
Thank you for your cooperation.
