Avoid violations letters

One of the primary benefits of living in an HOA is that there are guidelines for the maintenance and appearance of the properties within the community.  When properties fall below the standards, violation letters are sent to the residents. Often, the resident is not aware of the requirement, or sometimes, they just haven’t got around to getting the work done.  

 

Being aware of the standards and performing the necessary maintenance in a timely manner will alleviate the violation from being registered. For a handy brochure highlighting many of the common violations, click on the INFORMATION tab above, and then HELPFUL LINKS tab and the PDF for Helpful Information for Solera.

 

Here is the violation information for the month of May and should prompt you to get things done before they become a problem. 
We sent 109 first notices and 5 second notices. As such, most of the violations sent were the most visually obvious as well as complaints that were followed up on. 


These were the top violation categories:

Maintenance Fences= 34  

Landscaping (Weeds & Trimming) = 59

Your Water Quality: Our Top Priority

 

No matter where you live in Southern Nevada, you can count on the safety, reliability and quality of the drinking water you draw from your tap for you and your family. In fact, our drinking water meets or surpasses all state and federal standards—and is tested more thoroughly and frequently than most bottled water.

 

Local water providers including the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the Big Bend Water District, and the cities of Boulder City, Henderson and North Las Vegas have recently published their annual water quality reports. These reports provide you with detailed information about what’s in your drinking water and reflect the results of rigorous laboratory testing and advanced treatment conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA).

 

In fact, the SNWA tests your water 300,000 times a year, monitoring for more regulated and unregulated contaminants than is required by law. The Federal Safe Drinking Water Act sets water-quality standards for all water purveyors; in Nevada, these standards are enforced by the State of Nevada’s Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. Southern Nevada’s drinking water is carefully treated and regularly tested to ensure it meets these stringent requirements.

 

Still, some folks might shy away from tap water due to its hard, mineral-rich taste, while others mistakenly confuse taste with safety. Rest assured, your glass of tap water is both refreshing and safe to enjoy, and its naturally occurring minerals and electrolytes help keep you hydrated and healthy.

 

However, if the taste of tap water doesn’t appeal to you, there are some easy tips you can use to make your water lip-smackin’ good:

 

  • CHILL: Refrigerate a pitcher of tap water to boost flavor and zap chlorine perceptions.

  • FLAVOR: Add a citrus slice for zest.

  • FILTER: Try an activated carbon filter, like those in carafe systems, to reduce chlorine taste.

  • MAINTAIN: If you have an in-home filtration system, follow its recommended maintenance schedule, including filter replacement.

Leak Detection Critical for Saving Water

 

In recent years, the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) has enhanced its efforts to ensure the efficient and uninterrupted flow of water through the community’s complex underground grid of pipes and valves. While the nature of this work may appear complicated, the LVVWD deploys various high-tech tools to detect and repair leaks in a timely manner to avoid major shutdowns and loss of service.

One of these tools is an acoustic monitoring system, which “listens” to water as it flows through pipes and alerts technicians in the event of a leak. Typically, water flowing through pipes generates a low-frequency sound; however, the system can detect a high-frequency sound wave if water is leaking from a pipe. LVVWD technicians can then trace the leak’s location and work quickly to repair it.

  • For residents, detecting leaks on their property is also crucial to conservation efforts and to reduce water-waste in the community. To help residents detect, locate, and repair leaks, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) offers a rebate for smart leak detectors of 50 percent off the purchase price or $200, whichever is less. To receive the smart leak detector rebate coupon, applicants must participate in a 60-month research study related to consumer leak detection devices.

  • The program allows for one coupon per address.

  • Coupons are redeemable only for the purchase of a qualifying product.

  • The date of purchase from the customer receipt must be within 30 days of the coupon’s printed date.

The smart leak detector rebate program is important to the community as the leak detectors can help provide alerts to residents of potential water waste. This can help prevent you from incurring an excessive usage charge as the thresholds for seasonal water use were reduced earlier this year. For more information, visit snwa.com
