Irrigation: Sprinkler System and Ponds

Committee Members

  • Chairman: Carl Goetz
  • Daniel Crocker
  • Dan Rietter

Our sprinkler system draws water from the retention ponds and does not rely on city water. The ponds themselves receive run-off from Camino Real and can take water from the Lake Worth Drainage District canal as needed.

The South Florida Water Management District regulates when we can use our sprinkler system.

Visit the SFWMD website for additional information.

The sprinkler system operates on the souther lots (even numbered houses) on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and on the northern lots (odd numbered houses) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The system runs 25 minutes per zone.

A "wet check" (each zone is tested in sequence for correct operation) is carried out each month and repairs made when necessary. If you notice a dry patch near your home or a sprinkler that is not working, please report it to the irrigation committee.

 
Our ponds are stocked with triploid grass carp to control aquatic weed growth and are an alternative to the use of pesticides. (November 2013)

KEEPING THE CANAL RIGHT-OF-WAY CLEAR

Many people in Palm Beach County live along a District canal. In order to enhance their landscapes or properties, they may plant vegetation or place other encroachments on the District’s rights-of-way. Encroachments can cause canal blockages, obscure sightlines for visual inspections, slow the progression of drainage and impede access for maintenance and emergency response. Canal access is a critical component to overall public safety and flood control.

Visit the LWDD website for more information on their canal maintenance programs.
