Detention Basin Cleaning

Just an FYI to all of our residents. Next week the detention basin at the end of Shady Timber will be cleaned. This is a annual requirement by the City of O’Fallon storm water division. Our contractor will remove all built up sludge form the basin to prevent it from entering the storm water system.

Along those line, We would like to remind all residents that boarder the lakes not to use the lakes as dumping grounds for grass clippings and yard waste. This is also against storm water regulations as well as HOA rules. Dumping grass clippings is detrimental to the eco system of the lakes. Please use the yard waste service that O’Fallon provides.
