Water Supply Corp Urges Compliance

Dripping Springs Water Supply Corp (WSC) is urging members to comply with the twice-weekly watering schedule. After a wetter-than-normal winter, hot weather has returned and water levels are dropping at worrisome rates.

WSC will begin sending out reminders to members who are not complying with the following watering schedule:

Residential Customers

  • Odd-number street addresses - Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • Even-number street addresses - Thursdays and Sundays.

Commercial customers (including Homeowners Associations) can water on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Watering times are from 12:00AM to 10:00AM and 7:00PM to 12:00AM on permitted days.

Questions about watering restrictions and schedules can be forwarded directly to the Dripping Springs Water Supply Corporation at 512.858-7897 or by emailing their front office (Angie@drippingspringswater.com).

Found Dog! UPDATE

The little lady on the right was found on Golden Eagle around 7:00 this morning.IMG_0146
Her coat is badly matted, and she has no collar or tag, but she’s not malnourished and is VERY people friendly. She’s currently at the Dripping Springs Animal Hospital on Hwy 290 (512.858-4787). If no one claims her today, however, she’ll be turned over to Hays County Animal Control.

Dripping Springs Animal Hospital called this afternoon to say that our friend has been adopted and is being groomed and getting a complete physical before going to her new home!

Pool Inspection Complete!

You may have noticed quite a bit of traffic at the neighborhood pool this morning. The mandatory state inspection was completed around 10:00AM. There were no issues identified that require the board to close the pool for maintenance or repairs.

The board thanks everyone for giving us the time to complete the inspection; the pool is once again open to all members in good standing and their guests. Enjoy!

Questions about the inspection process and results can be forwarded to the HOA Administrator, the chair of the Pool, Pavilion and Common Areas Committee or to any board member.

Neighborhood Pool

Summer is here and the Hidden Springs Ranch Board of Directors welcomes all members in good standing, and their guests, to take advantage of the pavilion and swimming pool.
No lifeguard is on duty at the pool; while a number of safety improvements have been made to pool equipment, members use the pavilion, pool and common areas at their own risk and are expected to adhere to neighborhood rules and policies regarding the use of common facilities. If you’d like a refresher on neighborhood rules, please see the Hidden Springs Ranch Community Facilities Rules.

Please be aware that a 3-4 foot snake, believed to be a water moccasin, or cottonmouth, was sited and killed in the swimming pool shrubs. No other snakes were seen, but members should be cautious and closely monitor their children while using the pool, pavilion and other common areas. The board recommends that you DO NOT attempt to deal with snakes on your own. Contact the HOA Administrator, any board member or simply call the Hays County Sheriff’s office at 512.393-7896 and have them deal with the snake.

Also, please be aware that the pavilion emergency phone, together with other pool-side equipment, was recently rendered inoperative. A new phone has been ordered, and a temporary phone has been installed and tested to confirm access to Hays County Emergency Services (dial 9-1-1). The permanent emergency phone should be installed by Wednesday, June 6. In the event the temporary phone is rendered inoperative, the board will have no option but to close the pool until the permanent phone can be installed.
