Utility Work in Westfields -Notice

Thank you for working with the owners and tenants of Westfields Center.  The Westfields Business Owners Association (WBOA) spend a considerable amount of time and money keeping Westfields looking great and we would appreciate you all helping us keep it that way.  We understand you have a job to do as do we we in maintaining a beautiful community.  A few things you can do to help us both:

1.  Please use caution while digging in Westfields.  Always call Miss Utility prior to digging.  Please set up a pre-construction meeting with the WBOA prior to any work.  We maybe able to help save you time, money and frustration working together.

2.Please know when and where you are digging.  There is the VDOT right of way and multiple  easements including WBOA Shared Utility Easement, as well as Landscape and other private easements.  Regardless of where you dig you must restore back to original or better condition.

3. There are irrigation and water lines in the common area next to the roads throughout Westfields.  Main line is typically a foot to 3ft from face of curb.  Laterals with irrigation heads are in all of the common areas and walls. Please hand dig and locate these. We would prefer you call and have them marked by our landscape maintenance crew at your cost.  Westfield was grandfathered with their approval to have irrigation and landscape in the VDOT right away as was originally approved with the master plan of Westfields.

4. If you break or damage an irrigation line, please notify the WBOA office and the WBOA Landscape Maintenance team immediately. The WBOA contractor must fix this damage at the contractors expense. (Contacts below)

5. Please do not park your service trucks or equipment on the common grounds.  You are breaking utility boxes and irrigation heads as you do.  You will be asked to reimburse the WBOA for these repairs.

6. Do not open cut the roads or paths in Westfields please.   For test pits, please hot patch and seal these areas.

8. Do not place fiber marker poles in the common area.  They will be removed. You may place underground locators but no vertical boxes/pedestals without express written consent of the WBOA.

9. Please install utility boxes flush to the ground.  No pedestals please.  Broken or boxes that have sunk will be your responsibility to repair.

10. Please do not use rye or "Contractors Mix" for turf renovation.  Please finish grade with premium top soil and remove large objects and rocks and seed with Tall Fescue and seed mat only.  Area should be flat with free of equipment/truck ruts and dips to allow mowing. (No straw please).
