Save the Date: June 20th 6:30 Preventive Water Damage Program Presentation

Water damage claims are the most frequent home insurance claim in Charbonneau.  Many can be avoided.  Here are some examples of recent water damage that owners had to deal with:

 

  1. Ice maker water line burst during the night.  The next morning the owners’ new hardwood floors were all buckled and completely destroyed.  It was a nightmare for the owner to get a good contractor to come out and replace her floors and cost many thousands of dollars.

 

  1. The drain hose on a washing machine failed and an entire load of bleach water dumped onto the floor destroying the floor.

 

  1. A hot water tank located in the attic failed and water damaged the ceiling and leaked onto and damaged beautiful antique furniture.

Revised = Pool opening schedule – all pools will now open Memorial Weekend

The decision to open only two pools was decided (just a week ago) because of the weather and the cost to open pools even when no one would desire this.

 

Because of the more recent weather (this week) and the forecast for more of the same, the board has decided to open all of the pools this Memorial Weekend.

Enjoy your pool and have a great Memorial Weekend

New information from Zach Weigel on City of Wilsonville Storm drain/Sewer Construction

Email from Zach Weigel:

Good Morning,

 

I wanted to give you an update on the construction schedule for the Charbonneau Utility Repair work as I am sure many of you are wondering why construction has not started yet.  Recently, the City’s contractor requested that the construction schedule be delayed a couple of months to better align with their pipe lining subcontractor’s schedule.  Pipe lining is very specialized work, which is becoming more and more popular as a solution to repairing older pipelines.  As a result, scheduling contractors that specialize in pipe lining is becoming difficult.

 

Instead of starting the construction work now and then waiting until the pipe lining contractor is available, the City has requested the Contractor delay the start of construction to better align with the pipe lining schedule.  This will lessen the amount of total construction time and impacts to the residents.

 

I had been waiting to send a project update until the details of the construction schedule change are resolved with the Contractor, but I realize that we are almost two weeks beyond the original start date.  As soon as the construction schedule is resolved, I will send you an update and provide updated notice to residents within the construction areas.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

Thank you,

 

Zachary J. Weigel, PE

Fairway Drive Work Delayed one week (City of Wilsonville replacement of sewers and storm drains)

You probably already guessed …. The Fairway Dr/Boones Bend Rd has been delayed a week.  I spoke with Zachary (Civil Engineer for the project) today and he stated that they are having a meeting on Thursday and there will more complete information on Friday on the Website http://www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/651/Charbonneau-High-Priority-Utility-Repair  New Start date Monday April 24th

 

Some of you may have received  letters from the city describing  the next area of Charbonneau to be included in the sewer, water and storm drain projects. This April through August the city will be replacing sewers and some storm drains. The project which effects CHOA will be starting on Boones Bend at its first intersection with French Prairie down to Fairway, then up Fairway to 8065 SW Fairway Dr.

Since Boones Bend and Fairway Dr are well traveled roads I thought it would be good to let everyone know about the coming construction.

Construction will start April 17th, there will  likely be no access to Fairway Dr from the French Prairie 1st entrance into Charbonneau, think about taking the 2nd entrance to Charbonneau if you need to visit anyone on Fairway Dr, especially between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm from April 17th April 24th through August 2017.

There may be a shortage of guest parking during the day on some of Fairway Dr and Boones Bend as those who live on Fairway may need to use the guest parking areas during construction.
