NOTICE OF GAS MAIN AND SERVICE INSTALLATION
We are pleased to announce that PSNC Energy will be bringing natural gas past your home. PSNC Energy has hired MasTec as a contractor to install the gas lines. They will contact the NC one call to have all public utilities (Power, cable/telephone, water, and city sewer) located and identified prior to starting work.
NC one call does not locate any lines that are considered private such as sprinkler systems, low voltage lighting, dog fences, septic systems, or private water lines etc… Therefore if you have any of these types of lines located in the “Utility Right of Way” (the right of way is usually 20-30 feet from the center line of the road) or if you are receiving service to your home you will need to mark these lines, as we nor our contractors will be responsible for damage to private lines located in the utility right of way. If private lines are properly marked we will use caution around them.
As for replanting we will meet the DOT/NCDNR requirements with fescue seed and straw, we will not be replacing any sod on the right of way. If you require a special type of grass we will gladly spread the seed for you if you supply, or we can leave uncovered for a 7-day period if you choose to have your landscaper lay sod, just get with the crew onsite in advance.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation, if you have not already signed up for service and would like to get service to your home please feel free to contact us at 1-877-776-2427 or visit www.psncenergy.com/get-natural-gas

NOTICE OF GAS MAIN AND SERVICE INSTALLATION
Jun 21 2018
The Engineering Firm PSNC contracted with will be meeting with on site installation contractors to cover the environmental needs during construction the week of July 2nd. Assuming all goes well with weather, etc, construction will begin that week with the gas main install. The goal is to have the gas infrastructure installed throughout the community. No gas connections will take place at this time but it will allow us to move forward on our paving project.

This was the agenda from last week. Short version is our pricing is still good for the paving. We should hear something in the next couple of weeks on the issuance of the NCDNR permit to install the gas line. We are doing well on the budget, 98 homes have paid their assessments. Past due accounts are being dealt with in accordance with our HOA rules.

We had a nice group of neighbors last night. It was great seeing regular faces and a few new neighbors to Rivers Edge. Thanks to Marcia for getting everything ready well in advance. An update on the pool, it is now open to all residents who are current with their HOA dues. The lates natural gas update is PSNC is moving along with permits and have stated we will see the infrastructure installed by August of this year.Once the lines are in we will immediately start the road project. For those using the pool, take it upon yourself to clean up your trash and either take it with you or put in the trash cans and always lower the umbrellas in case of thunderstorms and/or high winds.

We are pleased to announce the Rivers Edge swimming pool is in the process of being converted from traditional chlorine to a salt water pool. We are having the filter media replaced, installing the salt conversion system and adding a timer on the pump to take advantage of lower utility rates from Wake EMC during non-peak times.

The latest on natural gas is PSNC is in the permitting phase of this project. I doubt we will see installation starting in May, but certainly this summer. The Board and members of the Road Committee met with Rian’s Paving this evening to go over his proposal as well as get a few questions answered.
Rian agrees that it will be best to hold off on paving until the gas infrastructure is installed. This will keep construction equipment from marking up the new roads. We asked Rian many of the questions that were asked during the special meeting last November.
Soil tends to swell when boring tools are used and the existing asphalt could rise or sink and repairs would need to be made, so recommend that we hold off on new paving.
How much notice is needed to proceed? Answer- typically less than two weeks.
Will we still be able to get to our homes during paving operations? Answer- yes, but if there is a cone placed in the your driveway, do not enter into the drive. The cone indicates that the sealant and overlay has not set up if you remove or drive around the cone, your pavement will have asphalt marks that we will not clean.
Contractor will “feather” the asphalt to the grade of your driveway as close as possible to have a smooth entry/exit.
For the homes whose grass has grown over our current asphalt, they will have to scrape back this area and it will be unsightly. The best solution is for the homeowner or your landscape contractor to keep the edge of your yard even with the edge of the existing asphalt. If you do this, you will be fine, otherwise whatever soil and grass will be rolled back with a blade and will be much more unsightly until it grows back.
We had a discussion about 1.25” overlay or 1’5”. The 1.5” is the depth of overlay that is used on interstates with much more traffic and larger volumes of heavy trucks. Rian believes that we are fine to go with the 1.25” overlay on top of the sealant.
The asphalt mix is NCDOT approved and will be the same mix used on any North Carolina highway.
We discussed and are seriously considering added up to three speed tables on Oak Grove Church Road from the entrance to the Clubhouse. No decision as of yet and these would be added after the new paving.
If you have sprinklers, need to mark any sprinkler heads that are close to the road and also turn off your sprinkler the day before paving starts so the streets are dry.
The proposal included removing the asphalt at the clubhouse and repaying and striping the lot. The Board approved this expenditure and authorized Rian to begin work so the lot will be completed before the Pool opens in May.
Regarding collections, there about 20% of the community have not paid the $850 assessment. Please make every effort to take care of this as soon as possible.
