Dunes CDD Irrigation Rules
In an effort to meet the need for the District’s irrigation water demand, the District has implemented its Irrigation Rules (PDF | RTF). However, due to high consumption of irrigation water and limited rainfall, the District may have to implement its Emergency Irrigation Rules (PDF | RTF) at any time. If the District imposes its Emergency Rules, signs will be posted at the entrances to Hammock Dunes, Ocean Hammock, Island Estates, Hammock Beach, and Yacht Harbor Village stating “Emergency Irrigation Rules in Effect”. The emergency notice will also be posted on Home Page.
Information on Reclaimed Water
Dunes CDD processes reclaimed water that is available in your area for certain non-potable (non-drinking) purposes. Use of reclaimed water for irrigation is a major component of Dunes CDD’s commitment to water conservation and is strongly encouraged by Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD). Connection of your irrigation system to Dunes CDD’s reclaimed water may NOT be connected to the potable (drinking) water system. Read more… (PDF | RTF)
Fire Hydrant Maintenance
Routine maintenance and inspection of our water distribution systems are performed on a monthly basis. It is very important that the fire hydrants are not hidden from view due to overgrown landscaping. The Flagler County Fire Department requires a clear area of a 6ft. radius around fire hydrants.
Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program
The Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) is administered by the FWC’s Division of Hunting and Game Management. SNAP is one of five components of Florida’s comprehensive Alligator Management Program. Its mission is to address complaints concerning alligators.
Persons with concerns about an alligator may call our toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286). When someone concerned about an alligator calls the Nuisance Alligator Hotline, we will dispatch one of our contracted nuisance alligator trappers to resolve the situation. Generally, an alligator may be deemed a nuisance if it is at least four feet in length and the caller believes it poses a threat to people, pets or property. www.myfwc.com/widlifehabitats/wildlife/alligator/snap/
Water Loss Due to Leaks
Did you know that a toilet left running can use up to 30, 000 gallons of water? Water leaks can be a big problem in the home. The smallest leaks can run up to 180 gallons in a 24 hour period. To give you an idea, we’ve provided a Water Loss Indicator (PDF | RTF)for your convenience.
Private Water Wells
The question has been asked if water wells are allowed within the District’s boundaries (Hammock Dunes, Island Estates, Ocean Hammock, Hammock Beach or Harbor Village Marina). The answer is NO. For a number of valid public health reasons including potential contamination or cross connection from untreated ground water, individual or private wells are prohibited. As part of the District’s Comprehensive Water Conservation Program, the District is empowered under Florida Statutes to regulate the installation and operation of wells whether for irrigation, drinking water or any other purpose. Flagler County Health Department is the permitting and enforcement agency for all wells smaller than six inches in diameter. The Health Department is aware of the District’s prohibition against private wells and will not issue permits for such wells within District boundaries. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the District Office at (386) 445-9045.
