A Fond Farewell And Thank You!
Posted on May 31st, 2021
It's with mixed emotions that I notify you all, my neighbors that as of June 1st Big Bend will have a new Administrative Assistant. 
After 17 years it's time to turn the responsibilities of Administrative Assistant over to Heather Walton. 
Heather, her husband Shaun and their children live in Big Bend and has accepted the position and its responsibilities. Heather has an impressive resume and had a very positive interview with me and a second board member. 
Heather will begin June 1st and can be reached by calling the Big Bend’s line at 360.793.7852 or by sending an email to bigbendtalk@gmail.com
 
I have enjoyed serving this community and calling all of you Big Benders my neighbor.
 
Warm Regards,
Arden King

​​​​​​​Water line and meter maintenance and installation requirements
Posted on Dec 28th, 2020
 
All work performed on the waterlines of Big Bend (road side of the meter) or the meter itself must be conducted in compliance with the current Uniform Plumbing Code. If you have proposed work for the meter or from the main to the meter contact Big Bend Landowners Association. 360 793 7852
 
Homeowners may conduct their own work on the meter side of the service connection as long as they do not alter the connection at the meter itself.

In the last 2 weeks we have had very unexpected shut downs of the well.
This was something we experienced in 2008 during the summer and have not had an issue with since that time.
 
Worst case would be the demand is exceeding the recovery of the well, best case we have some electrical issue that we can address and solve.
I have contacted the well pump company and we are looking at possible solutions.
 
Meanwhile, as a general conservation issue we want to remind everyone to use water wisely.
 
Best to water at dusk as the sun sets to allow water to sink in and not evaporate. Sunny day watering can damage plants as well.

Don’t over water gardens and yards because you forget the hose is on.  A timer is a great addition to your watering plan.
 
Don’t let water sprinklers water hard surface (roads, walkways, driveways etc…)
 
While washing your car in the driveway is convenient using a car wash uses far less drinking water (remember we have to treat every ounce of water that goes into the system)  and it is better for the environment to wash your car in a controlled area.
 
And Pools!  If you are going to have a backyard pool please consider filling it on a cold or wet day, fill it late in the evening or early in the morning.
 
If you see someone else filling a pool, wait till they are done.
We will be looking for the solution and get information out as soon as we have any more.
 
Thanks
