Frequent Areas of Concern:
Ground Water Levels - 
***Update 7/21/2021***
The East pump experiencing difficulties was successfully removed on Wednesday evening and following testing & diagnostics on Thursday, it was found that the pump motors startup capacitor had failed.  This is very fortunate as capacitors are very inexpensive and easy to replace once the pump can be accessed.  That said, I have requested that we examine the feasibility of re-wiring the pump to make the capacitors externally connected and placed in the above-ground control box, thereby making them more serviceable for future failures.  (Capacitors have a limited lifespan, especially for hard-working single-speed electric motors that need to start and stop frequently.)  Our greatest challenge has been accessing the pumps when service is required and we are looking at various options to make them more easily and rapidly serviceable.  There are rapid removal systems available, however, the original size of the sump where the pump resides may preclude that type of enhancement.  However, the most likely cause of failure remains electrical, specifically the capacitors, so hopefully those can be easily re-wired for external access.

Expected re-installation of the pump and activation should be by next week, the week of 7/26.

7/20/2021
Between seasonal irrigation of the farmland just south of RVR, homeowner watering and high levels of precipitation, ground water levels are higher than normal this time of year.  Individual sump pumps as well as the West main discharge pump are just keeping up with water levels.  However, the East main discharge pump is having some challenges which we are working on.  The HOA volunteers are handling de-watering the sump to allow for servicing by Pump technicians in an effort to reduce overall servicing and repair costs which includes operating gas pumps, continuous monitoring and refueling operations.

Town Park and Native Grass Areas - The Town of Frederick is responsible for the mowing and upkeep of the City Park and adjacent native grass areas as determined recently between a meeting of the Town maintenance team and the RVR Board of Directors.  The Town of Frederick maintenance team will be cutting back the Native Grass area on June 29th, 2021.  Typically, the native grass area vegetation will be taller as the intent of the Town is to permit those native plants to go to seed in order to prevent a die-off of the vegetation as that area is non-irrigated.  In general, the vegetation will be cut back every four to six weeks.

RVR Landscaped Areas - Wards Landscaping Services has been contracted to maintain the other landscaped areas which RVR is responsible for including the walking paths, sign area landscaping (West and South entrances), the ditches which traverse through RVR (Not the surrounding ditches which are privately owned.), and other common space landscaped areas.
