Chlorine and other chemicals used to keep your pool or spa clean cause BIG problems for fish and other aquatic life. Follow these steps to avoid compromising water downstream when you empty your pool or hot tub/spa.
Adjust or turn off sprinklersWithout the long hours of hot sun and limited rainfall, your lawn won’t need as much water to stay healthy. Save water and money by reducing run days and length or turning off your sprinklers for the season.
Store portable irrigation metersTake your portable meters inside for the winter to avoid damage from freezing weather. Don’t forget to report your final meter reading to WaukeeUtilities@Waukee.org to get your credit!
As you prepare for colder temperatures and turning on your heat, take a few minutes to review important gas safety information. If your home is heated by the City-managed natural gas utility, watch your mailbox for a natural gas safety brochure. Please review the information about safe digging, carbon monoxide, gas meter care, identifying gas leaks and more. If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak, leave your property immediately and call the City’s emergency gas hotline at 515-249-1212.
In October, American Research Associates will conduct a phone survey as part of a federally mandated program to assess public awareness about gas safety. If you receive a call from a 515 number with a caller ID displaying “research” or something similar, please answer to complete the short survey. The survey company will identify themselves as calling on behalf of the City of Waukee and will only ask questions about natural gas safety.
During fall, winter and spring, Trailside Dog Park is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Please be respectful to the neighbors around the dog park and only use the park during these hours of operation. Always keep an eye on your dog to ensure safety of park visitors, canine and human. Additionally, keep the park enjoyable for all by cleaning up your pet’s waste.
Dogs must have a valid annual pass tag attached to their collars, visible at all times. Waukee residents must license all dogs with the City of Waukee PRIOR to applying for a Trailside Dog Park pass. Non-residents must purchase an annual or one-day non-resident park pass in order to enter the Trailside Dog Park, but City of Waukee pet licenses are not required.
