Next week, the POA chipper will be brought off the island via barge for routine maintenance and will more than likely return the first or second week of April. If possible, we would like to ask members to hold off on putting piles at the end of driveways for the next week until the chipper has returned. If you planned to do some yard work while here for the POA weekend, please know that we will get to them once the chipper is back.
Also, as a reminder, the POA is happy to chip small piles that can be chipped efficiently and timely. Stacking debris in the same direction is helpful.
Renting the chipper and hiring a contractor is appreciated for larger piles.

Citizen Science Opportunity with DNR.
Do you enjoy watching the weather? If so, consider becoming an observer! The SCDNR’s State Climatology Office always has a need for a greater number of volunteer citizen-scientist weather observers. Sign up and join hundreds around the country in gathering weather data used by various local, state and federal agencies! These observations were extremely helpful to the SCDNR Climatology Office and U.S. National Weather Service during Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Matthew and the historic flood of October 2015.
The more observations, the clearer the picture, the better the understanding of where it did and did not rain. For more information please visit http://www.dnr.sc.gov/climate/sco/
