No Bikes on Tennis Court Please
Water’s Edge Homeowners Association reminds everyone that our tennis court is restricted to tennis and pickleball playing only.  Other activities or forms of play are not allowed.  
 
Please ensure your children are aware of this rule and that they stay out of the tennis court.  The riding of bikes and scooters, playing on the court with other toys or hanging/pull on the net creates damage to the court and repair costs to homeowners.
Thank you for your cooperation.

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 River, our fresh water source.  Pet waste may also carry disease-causing organisms, which makes water unsafe for swimming and more costly to treat for human consumption.
 
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 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.

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!

White Swan Decoys Deployed
to Reduce Geese Breeding
 
Swan decoys have been found to effectively reduce Canadian Goose nesting and breeding. 

In early March, swan decoys were deployed to attempt to reduce our growing Canadian Goose population.
 
Geese in our ponds create hundreds of pounds of poop around the ponds weekly. The typical goose deposits 2 pounds of poop daily. 
 
 
In nature, White Swans are very territorial and will fight off most intruders who venture into their habitat.  Geese generally will not want to nest where aggressive white swans live and most times, the geese will choose another body of water to land, feed and nest in.  
 
The decoys will be removed in at the end of nesting season.
