Nighttime Drone Survey for LED Street Lights
The Town of Round Hill has contracted with Flying Fox UAV, a professional aerial acquisition company based out of Lovettsville, Virginia, to take a nighttime survey of Main Street, Loudoun Street, Lake Ridge Estates and Creekside. This survey will document the before/after illumination of the new LED streetlight installation process that is in its final phase and show the benefits of the dark sky compliant lights.
This work will occur during the early nighttime hours on Tuesday (11/5/19) and Wednesday (11/6/19) of next week. This work should be silent with no negative impact on the residents. During this survey, the Town will take a video of the neighborhoods from several hundred feet in the air and then at a road level view to simulate the view seen by drivers. At all times, the privacy of the public and houses will be maintained, and no images will be taken looking into windows of the homes. All staff from Flying Fox UAV will be in company vehicles with proper identification when they are operating drones in the street area. In addition, this company is licensed by the FAA to complete these flights and aerial surveys.

VDOT ANNOUNCES PLANS TO PAVE MAIN ST (RT. 719)
As a part of VDOT's road condition improvement program, Route 719 between RT. 7 BUS and RT. 9 is scheduled to be repaved in 2019. Weather permitting, the milling work within the corporate limits of the Town of Round Hill is expected to start on Thursday October 24th, and is expected to be completed within 10 days from the start of the operations. The typical work hours will be 9 AM-3:30 PM, with possible hour extension of 7 AM-6 PM (where feasible). During this timeframe, the residents will encounter partial lane closures of the road and “No Parking” will be enforced while crews are actively working. The contractor will post temporary “No Parking” signs along the section of the road, where needed, about 72 hours prior to beginning milling/paving operations. We sincerely appreciate everyone's understanding and patience, in order to allow the crews to complete their work. For additional information and / or concerns please contact VDOT's Project Manager for this repaving work, Gegham Sahakyan. His contact information is [email protected] or 703-259-2337
TOWN OF ROUND HILL SCHEDULES DRONE SURVEY OF MAIN STREET (October 21, 2019 at Noon)
Last week, VDOT notified the Town that they would be milling and paving parts of RT. 719 which includes Main Street. The Town decided to accelerate our aerial survey of Main Street in advance of this work and our Pedestrian Project beginning this Spring. The Town Council feels that documentation and communication are critical components in managing street projects: this includes documenting images of the project location before, during and after the project is complete.
The Town has contracted with Flying Fox UAV, a professional aerial data acquisition company based out of Lovettsville, Virginia. Flying Fox UAV will create a baseline map of the area to document the road and streetscape prior to VDOT milling/paving the section of road from 35 Main Street to the intersection at Loudoun Street. This company is licensed by the FAA to complete aerial surveys. The work will occur on Monday, October 21, 2019 around noon.

Stoneleigh Valve Repair Scheduled for October 9th
During the water main break on October 4th, the Town had to close two valves and one of the valves began to leak a small amount when the system was brought back online. While it is a small leak now, the valve is in a critical location for our system and seldom do leaks in this type of valve go away, so we have proactively scheduled this emergency repair for Wednesday (October 9, 2019) starting in the morning at 8 AM.
This valve repair should be a lot less disruptive than the leak the other night because it is a controlled project where we aren’t losing large amounts of water from a break. It is the Town’s plan to shut down valves at Prestwick/Stoneleigh Drive and Dornoch/Stoneleigh Drive. This should isolate the section where the valve needs to be replaced. Unlike the leak the other night, we expect all the upper section above the intersection of Dornoch/Stoneleigh Drive to remain in water without any pressure impacts since the tank is full. There will be approximately 15 homes and the golf course that may see some impacts which could include reduced pressure or interruption of water service. We estimate this repair will take about 4 hours.
During this period, we have coordinated with the Fire Department to make sure they have additional tankers dispatched on any structure fire as a precaution.
Thank you again for your patience as we make additional improvement to the Stoneleigh Water System.
VDOT begins Paving on Business 7 from Round Hill to Purcellville.
VDOT owns and maintains all the public streets in the Town of Round Hill and has complete control of the maintenance and paving. In early Spring of this year, the Town received notice that all of Loudoun Street would be paved during the summer paving season. The Town did not have the ability to select sections or reallocate the money in lieu of paving to put towards the Main Street Enhancement Project & Franklin Park Trail (that is currently out to bid and will begin this Spring).
The Town Council formally asked VDOT to conduct paving work during the day to reduce impact to residents. They also asked to give the Town Office two weeks’ notice along with a notice to all the residents impacted on Loudoun Street. VDOT formally agreed to the advance public notice but declined the request for daytime work. The work start date has changed several times in the last 4 months but last month, the Town was informed that the work would begin the end of October with adequate notice to all parties. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, and the contractor moved in Saturday and started the work Sunday night with no advance notice to the Town and residents. The Mayor contacted VDOT this morning (10/7/19) to express his frustrations on behalf of the residents.
This project work calls for one more night of milling and then approximately three nights of paving, once all the milling is complete to Purcellville. The Town has asked VDOT for more details on timing and we are awaiting their update which we will provide once received.
Please keep in mind that this paving work is a different project than the Main Street Enhancement Project & Franklin Park Trail which will install stormwater lines under Main Street and East Loudoun Street, along with curb, gutter and streetlight conduits. This project is a longer term project scheduled to start in 2020. This paving project is only general maintenance and not a long term solution to challenges with stormwater or pedestrian accessibility in Downtown Round Hill.
The Mayor and Town Council apologize for any inconvenience that this project may have caused the residents of Round Hill, and promises that any future project managed by the Town will always take into consideration the impact to the public and try to minimize any impacts or inconveniences.
STONELEIGH UPDATE: As of 12:30 am, the water line break along Stoneleigh Drive was repaired. The Stoneleigh Subdivision Utility System should be running smoothly by the time the sun rises. If there is any issues with air in your pipes, let your faucets run for a bit and they should regain normal pressure. If you have any issues or questions, please email [email protected] - Thank you for your patience tonight! And thank you to our amazing Utility Staff for getting on the scene and repairing the break so quickly!
URGENT UPDATE: Please prepare for the loss of water overnight, or longer in Stoneleigh Subdivision. Town Crews will need to shut down the system to repair the broken main. If you know of someone who lives in Stoneleigh, please reach out to them and let them know.
NOTICE: There is a water line break at Stoneleigh along Stoneleigh Drive. The Town Utility Staff are heading over now to manage the situation. We will keep you posted as we find out more information. Please use caution when driving along Stoneleigh Drive.
Don't forget! Tonight at the Town Park - Round Hill Outdoors is hosting the Movie in the Park "Small Foot"

UPGRADES COMPLETED TO STONELEIGH WATER SYSTEM
The Town has successfully installed a backup power generator to provide emergency alternative power to run our wells located in the Stoneleigh section of our water system. This was the second phase of a three-phase process that the Town Council approved under our 5-Year Capital Improvements Program to install emergency power sources to run our utility operations during an interruption to the normal power grid.
This construction process was completed in August with the help and support of Stoneleigh Golf Club. Under the current upgrade, the generator will allow the Town to run the wells during any period of interruption of power on the electrical grid feeding this area. This will allow operations to continue to produce water for the customers in this service area.
The Town is now designing the final phase of this CIP Project which will include an upgrade to the generator that supports the Goose Greek Water Treatment Facility and Goose Creek Sewer Lift Station.
