Rain, Rain Go Away...

Have you ever wondered why the irrigation is running along a roadway for a mile or two or on a golf course for days after an extreme amount of rain has fallen?  Well, it’s due to the fact that the water retention areas throughout The Villages are above the recommended level and must be lowered.  These measures are in place to make room for more rain water, which is collected from the streets, yards and golf courses, should there be a second rain event coming.  This information is provided to you by our District Property Management Department.

Phone Book Recycling

As you receive your new phone books, many are unsure of what to do with the old phone books. Please keep our community clean and beautiful by putting your old phone books out for collection on your regular home "recycling" day. Thank you!
