Yard waste is defined as grass clippings, leaves, or bush/hedge trimmings resulting from the normal maintenance of your property. Up to 10 bags, bundles, or containers not to exceed 50 pounds each may be collected per home each week. 
 
Please place your yard waste on the curb in brown paper yard waste bags or deposited in a personal container clearly marked 'YARD WASTE' on both sides of the container.  Waste should be placed curbside the night before to ensure pick-up.

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.
 
Thank you for your cooperation,
Water’s Edge Board of Directors

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 vehicle in our limited guest parking spots.  This way we always have enough spots for overflow parking of residents and guests.
 
We thank you for your cooperation.

Water's Edge News
Route 29 Widening Project
The VDOT project to widen Route 29 will reconstruct and widen 1.5 miles of the road from 2 lanes in each direction to 3 lanes between Union Mill Road and Buckleys Gate Drive. It is expected to relieve a major bottleneck and lengthy back-ups during AM and PM peak hours, particularly at the Stringfellow/Clifton roads traffic signal.
 
 
The project will also correct vertical alignment (hills and dips) to improve visibility, add and improve shared-use paths on both sides of Route 29 and provide paths to walking and bicycle trails at the Fairfax County Parkway and West Ox Road interchange. 
 
You may have noticed tree clearing work on both sides of the road as preliminary work continues.  The project is expected to be completed by Spring 2026. 
 
The estimated cost of the widening project is $98 million dollars, funded with federal, state and county dollars, as well as part fees under the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project Agreement. 
 
That section of Route 29 averages 30,000 vehicles a day.

Thieves are Active
A resident recently had a visitor’s car broken into while parked in guest parking. Electronics and other items were stolen. Additionally, strangers have been seen driving the community and taking photos. While this may be innocent home improvement company reps looking for potential replacement window, roofs or other projects, Waters Edge is a private community and these canvasing actions are by law, trespassing. 
 

These recent activities should remind us all to remember the following:
 
• ALWAYS lock your cars and remove anything of value that can be viewed from the outside.
• ALWAYS lock home doors and windows (front and rear).
 
• ALWAYS keep your garage door closed. An unattended open garage invites crimes of opportunity. 
 
• NEVER open doors to strangers.
 
• For deliveries, set up text notification so you can immediately bring in your deliveries. You can also request specific location delivery, such as your front porch vs. the driver leaving the package in your driveway. Additionally, if you know the package will sit for hours, send your Amazon deliveries to your office or to a nearby hub locker. Amazon’s nearest lockers: 7-Eleven next to CVS and at the nearby Whole Foods.
 
• Remain vigilant to suspicious activity and watch out for your neighbors. 

PLEASE HELP KEEP WATERS EDGE SAFE!
