Helpful Information from Neighbors
We recently had a flood in our laundry room because of a faulty pressure relief valve (it reduces the water pressure from the street to a lower pressure that is safe for your house).
Our house was one of the first in Lee’s Crossing—it is about 25 years old. These valves wear out! They will break through at the weakest point in your house. Our weakest point was the hot water hose to the washer. The water in our house ran for about an hour and a half. We are at the point of having the tile removed and having very hot, loud machines in our laundry room, our dining room and our basement for a week. Save yourself the hassle and expense by getting your dpressure relief valve checked before it fails! Judy Gordon
Are you tired of paying hundreds of dollars a month to water your landscaping? I am sick and tired of these Marietta Power bills coming in and the water portion is over $400.00 a month. Buying a meter is my last chance option. I think paying $1700.00 to have an irrigation meter installed and still pay $16.20 for 0 - 2000 gallons, plus $7.72 (per each additional 1000 gallons of usage) is ridiculous.
I have been doing some research about drilling a well myself and also having someone come out and drill it for me. The one factor which has constantly been my concern is.... Is there really water down there and where should I drill to achieve the maximum gpm.
I think I have come up with a
solution for that. I have located a company that will provide a geological
seismic survey of my property. They will be able to determine the best
place to drill (or not to drill), and an estimate of possible gpm flow
rate. They charge $325.00 per sounding. I estimate my lot is
approximately 3/4 of an acre. Over the phone, he believes that he can complete
the survey in 4 - 5 soundings. Their travel expenses, ie., gas, hotel,
and meals will also need to be covered. He already has one more person
that he can distribute these expenses with. Is there anyone in Lee's
Crossing who would like to join in to have their property surveyed? We
also need a volunteer who already has a well drilled in Lee's Crossing to do
1. Confirm that they have at least 5 gpm flow rate.
2. Confirm that they have a well log, so that he can review it.
approval to peal back 18 inches of sod, if needed, to perform a sounding as close
possible to their well head so that he can calibrate his equipment to our area. He will
place the sod back so that it will not be noticed that he has been there. Unfortunately, our
well in the parking lot by the club house will not work due to the asphalt.
This will be a great opportunity for anyone considering drilling a well in Lee's Crossing. Please let me know as soon as possible if you or someone you know is interested. Robert Woodson RobertWoodsonJr@aol.com 551 Russett Court 770-490-6809

Burruss Fundraising News
Our neighborhood elementary school, A.L. Burruss, is soliciting donations for their annual Silent Auction. The auction is the largest PTA fundraiser of the year and takes place during the school's Fall Festival. This year the auction and fall festival will be held the evening of Friday, October 1st. With the current economic downturn, many larger corporations that donated in the past are reducing or eliminating donations, so we are particularly relying on our friends and neighbors to help make this year's auction a success. Please contact Katie White at (770) 833-8558 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any gift certificates, vacation homes, services, goods, or anything you might like to donate. All donations are tax deductible.

David and Leslie Geiger had the exterior of their home painted by Ocampo Brothers Painting this summer and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Their home was carefully painted and those who worked on their home went the extra mile. They worked diligently to complete the job in a timely manner and even washed the windows before calling the project complete! They highly recommend Ocampo Brothers Painting
