BEFORE YOU BUILD, EXCAVATE OR DIG CONTACT TEXAS811 Landscaping your yard? Adding trees, plants or maybe a flower bed? Thinking of adding an addition to your home? Before doing any excavation or building, call 811 to locate utilities.

STORM DRAINS FLOW TO OCEAN Unlike the water that goes down your drain to the sewer, water that flows into storm drains is not treated and filtered for pollutants. This contaminated water flows into canals, into streams and lakes, then ends up in the ocean. Everything other than pure rain water is a potential contaminant that degrades water quality. It’s very important that you help prevent contaminants from flowing into storm drains and never pour anything into them. Intentionally pouring water, pollutants, including grass clippings and leaves, into street gutters and storm drains is dangerous to the environment and is also illegal.

One phone call can save you from cutting a phone line, striking a gas line, or cutting a power line. It will also save you time and money. When you build or plant in an easement, you are taking the risk and financial burden of blocking an easement. The utilities have the right to those easements. Obstacles placed in the easements without proper consent can be removed and not replaced.

Storm drains are designed to handle normal water flow, but, occasionally during heavy rain, flooding will occur. Help limit the number of flooding incidents by keeping the drains clear by sweeping your curb after mowing and picking up stray trash before it ends up in the storm drain. This not only helps you and your property but everyone in the neighborhood.

After you have made the call to Texas811, take a look at your land survey. When you purchased your home, one was included.

It’s Flu Season!! Influenza (flu) is a contagious disease which affects the lungs and can lead to serious illness, including pneumonia. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. The flu vaccine is safe. They have been given to hundreds of millions of people for more than 50 years and have a very good track record. The flu vaccine cannot cause flu illness; however, it can cause mild side effects that may be mistaken for flu. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, you can still spread the virus to others. Don’t be the one spreading flu to those you care about.

The assistance of residents is necessary in order to improve the quality of data that is being captured by both the City and TCEQ. Many residents are posting the air quality events on Facebook or other social media outlets. Residents should report their issue directly to TCEQ/the City of Pearland. All smells should be reported to the City of Pearland at 281.652.1900. The City is responding to these requests and making customer contact 24/7. Once City staff responds to the complaint, they will drive the area and attempt to document the boundaries of the odor event. All other environmental complaints regarding odors can be submitted to the TCEQ by calling the Houston Regional Office depending on the type if odor: Unknown, chemical, or mixed odors/visible emissions/other air issues – Air Section: 713.767.3714 Landfill/garbage odor – Waste Section: 713.767.3641 Sewage/Wastewater – Water Section: 713.767.3676 All resident complaints must be registered with TCEQ/City of Pearland by an individual, detailing the specific concern in order for the complaints to be effectively handled. If there is an odor, provide an intensity ranking from 1 to 5 (1 being minimal and 5 being extreme). By tracking this information, we can begin to establish a more exact map of the affected areas for each event.

How To: Clean Vinyl Siding Vinyl siding is a durable, versatile, and resilient building material, but it does require some routine care and cleaning. The growing popularity of vinyl siding is indisputable. Indeed, U.S. Census Bureau statistics indicate that vinyl siding has been the leading exterior cladding in the U.S. since 1995. Its popularity shows no sign of waning; in 2011, 33% of new single-family homes sold in the U.S. were sided in the material. Because it is an exterior product, vinyl siding can accumulate a host of dirt, grime, and stains on account of things like pollen, bird and insect droppings, spider webs and rust. In shady, moist areas, mold and mildew can grow, and vinyl is also vulnerable to discoloring effects from insecticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. In addition, vinyl siding’s finish may be marred by a number of commonly used household maintenance products, including caulking, driveway sealant, tar, motor oil and paint Luckily, vinyl siding is fairly easy to clean, and there are a wide variety of products to help remove typical stains. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, the best way is to use a soft cloth or an ordinary long-handled, soft-bristle brush. To prevent streaking, start at the bottom and work up towards the top of the house. Thoroughly rinse any cleaning solution as you go. Some good cleaning solutions include: • 70% water, 30% white vinegar makes a great all-purpose cleanser that removes light mold and mildew stains. • For a stronger solution, mix together one-third cup powdered laundry detergent, two-thirds cup powdered household cleaner, one quart liquid laundry bleach and one gallon of water. • If you are concerned about landscaping, use a solution comprised of one gallon of water mixed with one cup oxygen bleach in a bucket. The oxygen bleach will clean the vinyl without damaging your landscaping. • Simple Green offers an environmentally friendly cleaner that is specially formulated for use on vinyl and aluminum siding, stucco, terra cotta roof tiles and painted wood. The non-toxic biodegradable concentrate can be used manually or with pressure washers. • General household cleansers (e.g., Fantastik, Murphy’s Oil Soap, Windex and Lysol) can be used on tough dirt and stains, including those created by top soil, grass, grease, oil, rust, crayon, ink and bubble gum. Rust stains may be removed using products designed for this purpose (e.g., Super Iron Out and Instant Rust Out). Another effective way to clean vinyl siding is by using a pressure washer, although some manufacturers advise against it, and other manufacturers recommend a limited amount of pressure. If using a pressure washer, be sure to keep the stream at eye level and pointed straight at the siding, not at an angle. That way, you won’t drive water in behind the siding. Use caution when using a pressure washer around openings like windows, doors, and plumbing connections. Avoid using any cleaning products that contain organic solvents, undiluted chlorine bleach, liquid grease remover, nail polish remover, or furniture polish or cleaners. Any of these products might damage the vinyl siding’s surface. Also, avoid using highly-abrasive scrubbers or steel wool; these, too, can cause damage. With just a little bit of time and effort, vinyl siding can be kept looking “like new” and will provide many years of trouble-free protection for your home.

The second annual Wobble Before You Gobble Community Health Fair presented by Neighbors Emergency Center was a huge success with a record attendance of 1500 people. This event is Pearland’s biggest fitness, health and community fair that was jointly organized by the Pearland Town Center and Shadow Creek Ranch Outdoors Committee with a partnership from Alvin ISD.  We had more than 40 volunteers from the community who worked with great passion behind the scenes and helped in making the event the success that it was. This year the event was hosted at the Pearland Town Center Fitness and emceed by Elizabeth Thomas, owner of theBURN Personal Training Studio.  There were approximately 55 vendor booths that conducted health screenings, gave free flu shots, free massages, free B12 shots, free consultations and much more.   The event was kicked off with theBURN warming everyone up to the Wobble dance, followed by the National Anthem performed by Nolan Ryan Junior High’s Choir.  It was non-stop from there with Zumba fitness by Body Evolution, Manvel Majestic’s and JV dance team dancing their way to glory, U-Jam fitness by Denitra BruerRobinson got the entire floor moving, Cardio Salsa by Lydia Dungas had everyone shaking their hips to the beat followed by a scintillating performance by Shadow Creek High School’s Sapphire dance team and their Drumline entertained the community with the rhythm of their drum beats.  A CPR Flash Mob organized by our very own Constable Buck Stevens was a hit and very informative.  Bollywood fitness diva, Parmita Modi and her team from Yuva Fitness captivated the crowd with fast pace workouts to Indian music. iLoveKickboxing elevated everyone’s heart rate by teaching punching and kicking combinations and Master’s Taekwondo gathered the community kids and taught the kids several different stances.  The fitness demonstrations ended by cooling down with community Yoga expert Hasita Kartik that demonstrated the proper way to stretch and relax. Throughout the event, Areal Yoga was being demonstrated by “The Heightened experience” and was a delight to watch. Additionally, we had Alvin ISD Police Department do the Drunk Driving/Safe Driving demonstration, the Alvin ISD Book Bus, kids tennis activity, inflatables, rock wall and free henna.  In between demonstrations, kids and adults were invited to do sit-ups, push-ups, burpees and other workouts and received several amazing giveaways all donated by several shops in the Pearland Town Center.  The event has been highly acclaimed and appreciated by the community.  A special thank you to our mascots TOM the Turkey and his sister TAMMY the turkey along with Alvin ISD Education Foundation’s SHELDON the turtle for entertaining the crowd through their workouts, dances and interactions. All the volunteers gathered together for one final Wobble dance performance before the event ended. We will be back next year so stayed tuned.

A THANKSGIVING FEAST IS TOO GOOD TO WASTE At Thanksgiving, many people give thanks for their good fortunes. We often celebrate by eating a special meal with family and friends—casseroles, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and, of course, turkey. In fact, about 46 million turkeys are eaten at Thanksgiving. The abundance of food is truly something to be thankful for. However, it is important to consider the effect that our food has on our environment. It takes energy and water to grow, manufacture, and transport our food. Also, in the U.S., we waste about one-fifth of our food—the majority of that winds up in landfills. Not only does this have an environmental cost, it also has a financial cost. We waste the equivalent of $370 worth of food per person each year—or enough money to buy about 21 turkeys for each American. This Thanksgiving, show your appreciation for our bounty of food by throwing away less. Here are some tips to get you started.

TIPS TO AVOID FOOD WASTE THIS THANKSGIVING SHOP SMART. The best strategy to avoid food waste and save money is to buy only what you need. As a bonus, you’ll have more room in your fridge to store all your holiday food. PLAN AHEAD. Write down the ingredients you’ll need to prepare your feast and how much of each you will need to buy. Shop your kitchen first to see what food you already have on hand, then make your grocery list.

WHEN PURCHASING FOOD, check the date on the food package to ensure there is enough time for you to use it before it spoils. Pick up refrigerated and frozen foods just before checkout. Put any items that spoil easily in a thermal bag for the ride home and put them in the refrigerator or freezer within two hours of shopping. STORE FOODS PROPERLY. Storing your fruits and vegetables properly will help to ensure they don’t spoil before it’s time to cook your special meal. As a bonus, they’ll also taste better. STORE LEFTOVERS PROPERLY AND EAT THEM BEFORE THEY EXPIRE. Give yourself

a break from cooking. After spending hours in the kitchen whipping up a Thanksgiving feast, you can relax knowing you have leftovers in the fridge. Just be sure to store them properly. Cut the turkey into small pieces and store it separately from the stuffing. Within two hours of cooking, put leftovers into shallow containers in the fridge. This will allow them to cool more quickly so they spend less time in the food danger zone—40 to 140 degrees F. Use them within three to four days or freeze them. Most food is thrown away because it has spoiled. If you are worried that all your Thanksgiving leftovers will go bad before you can eat them, there are a few things you can try. • Designate an “Eat First” area of your fridge to store foods that are closest to spoiling. • Send food home with your guests. If they are traveling for more than two hours, the food should be stored in a cooler with freezer packs. • Host a Leftover Party the day after Thanksgiving and ask guests to bring a dish made from their leftover Thanksgiving feast.


Despite our best efforts, it can be hard to prevent all our Thanksgiving leftovers from spoiling. But, at least we can prevent some of them from going in the trash. Currently, 95 percent of our food waste ends up in landfills. Instead, turn your food scraps into nutrients for your yard by composting them. Only certain foods can be composted in a backyard bin. Vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds and filters, and used tea bags are good choices. Do not compost meat, bones, fish, dairy products, grease, or oil. Didn’t need as many cans of pumpkin as you thought? You can also donate non-perishable and unspoiled perishable foods to food banks and pantries in your community.


It’s a shame to let that delicious Thanksgiving feast spoil. Hopefully this post has given you some ideas to prevent that. But, food waste is a year-round problem. On average, 36 pounds of food per person is wasted each month. These tips can help you prevent food waste and save money all year long.
