$YRLGLQJ6DQLWDU\6HZHU2YHUORDGV Most citizens seldom stop to think about sewers until a problem arises. Believe it or not, nearly 150 miles of sanitary sewer extend underground beneath the city. Typically, this system of sewers transports wastewater from homes and businesses to the Waste Water Treatment Plant 24 hours each day, every day. During times of wet, rainy weather, a unique problem sometimes presents itself. “Illegal water� is discharged into sewers that may be operating at near or full capacity, causing nasty consequences like sewage back-ups. Current City Code does not allow groundwater collected by footing or drain tiles at building foundations to be deposited into the City’s system of sanitary sewers. This “illegal� problem regularly presents itself in Cedar Falls. You may be contributing to your own or your neighbor’s sanitary sewer back-up problems from such illegal connections. Often, the water collected by tiles collects at a low point, and is then discharged via a sump pump. Sanitary sewers were not designed to accommodate the volume of water generated by subsoil drainage systems. An expensive overload can occur. It is legal, advisable, and desirable for this water to be discharged into side or rear yards, into drainage ditches, or into City storm sewers with approved connections to street drainage systems which is a separate system. Think about the home or business where you live and work. If there are drainage tiles surrounding the structure, do you know where the ground water is deposited? If it is going to the City’s sanitary sewer system, you must redirect the water. Your voluntary correction of such a problem is a major benefit to all of us. Questions can be directed to a plumbing contractor or to the City’s Inspection Services Division at 273-8606.

6XPPHU(QULFKPHQW3URJUDP1RZ$FFHSWLQJ$SSOLFDQWV Each year the Cedar Falls Historical Society, through the Little Red Schoolhouse, offers a fun filled week of learning and activities for children who have completed grades 1-6. Every year is unique with an emphasis in a different area of study. This year, participants will be studying the pioneers who came to Iowa. The summer enrichment program has expanded to six sessions: July 5-9; July 12-16; July 19-23; July 26-30; August 2-6; and August 9-13. The students will learn the four 4Rs – reading, ‘riting, ‘rithmatic, and recess, using materials from the 1909 time period. They receive the opportunity to use old toys and games: croquet, jump rope, hoops, jacks, Lincoln Logs, and graces to name a few. They will be taking a field trip during one day of school. The last day of school the class will present a program for family and friends, and treat them to homemade ice cream and lemonade. Each student will receive a Little Red Schoolhouse t-shirt. Tuition is $60 per student. To receive registration materials, contact the office at 319-266-5149 or send email to cfhistory@cfu.net 2 | Summer 2010 CedarFalls.com

The Cedar River Festival will take place SUNDAY, AUGUST 1, also at Exchange Park, from 1 to 7 p.m.

<DUG:DVWH'LVSRVDO Did you know that 30-40% higher phosphate levels can occur in surface water from streets with leaves or grass than from clean streets? This can cause algal blooms and growth of unwanted aquatic vegetation in your streams and lakes. Please help us restore our water ways.

:KDW\RXFDQGRWRPDQDJH \DUGZDVWH

■ Use a compost pile or yard waste collection system ■ Yard waste can be recycled into compost that can be used for improving soil quality and plant health

■ Never mow in a direction that blows lawn clippings on the street. ■ If clippings do get into the street, sweep or blow clippings and sediment back into the yard.

When yard waste and fertilizers containing phosphorus enter our storm drains, algal blooms and oxygen depletion occur, damaging our streams, lakes and rivers.

3KRVSKRUXV)UHH ■ Unless you have newly seeded lawn, most soils in Iowa provide all of the phosphorus needed ■ Understand the fertilizer label: NPK N=nitrogen, P=phosphorus, K=potassium

*UHHQ*UDVV Back in the day topsoil was topsoil! Plenty of “root” space for air and rain and chock-full of soil organic matter that soaked up water and stored nutrients to “feed” grass and plants. Today, the first thing contractors do when constructing new homes and buildings is to haul off the good stuff, leaving behind compacted, lifeless soil that needs constant attention. The tighter the soil the harder it is for plants to survive The more soil organic matter the less you have to spoon feed plants A healthy yard depends on plenty of breathing room and soil organic matter Soil compaction and a lack of soil organic matter is a death sentence to all

plants. Both challenges can be overcome with a little time and effort! Here’s what to do... 1. “Re-open” compacted ground through aeration which mechanically creates voids in your yard by removing small plugs or soil cores. 2. “Re-fill” newly created soil voids with quality compost. Spread it or blow it on. 3. “Re-seed” with quality grass seed 4. Rake for a good “seed to soil contact” 5. Water as needed & watch it sprout! The seedbed should remain moist until the seedlings have germinated. Continue watering for at least three weeks or until the lawn is completely established. Once established, cut back on the watering to encourage deeper rooting.

&LW\(QHUJ\$FWLRQ1HWZRUN²9ROXQWHHU7RGD\ A Cedar Falls Energy Action Citizen Network is helping to accelerate the community’s energy improvement actions. Meetings are open to the public and typically held the second Tuesday of the month. Check the calendar at cedarfalls.com. Recognizing an opportunity to help improve the quality of life by building on already progressive community attitudes and actions, Mayor Jon Crews appointed network members in February 2009. The Network includes representatives from Cedar Falls schools, construction, architecture, landlords, Cedar Falls Utilities, UNI, Cool Congregations, Green Iowa AmeriCorps, City staff, City Council, and Cedar Falls Residents. Network members determined their mission and goals and then launched into making things happen. Mission: To create a community with a more sustainable quality of life by fostering a network of advocates for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and environmental improvement who will guide the development and implementation of a longterm local energy action plan, engage key stakeholders and lead cultural and behavioral change in our community. Goal: To develop and implement strategies that will result in: 1. Improved quality of life based on energy and environmental factors 2. Significant energy efficiency improvement in: ■ City infrastructure and properties ■ Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings ■ Transportation ■ Recreation 3. Significant reduction in Cedar Falls’ reliance on fossil sources of energy and increased use of renewable energy sources 4. Waste reduction

6 | Summer 2010 CedarFalls.com

The Network’s Landlord Initiatives Committee announced its latest step that establishes Green Iowa AmeriCorps staff to work directly with landlords to help make their rental units more energy efficient. No other Iowa community can be found working to specifically help landlords reduce energy use. This action took months of work from several landlords, CFU staff, and Green Iowa AmeriCorps to determine the best route to encourage landlords to weatherize their units. Two Green Iowa AmeriCorps staff work with landlords to help them plan and carry out weatherization efforts. Landlords can call Matt Kostle or Tim Warren at 319-447-7212. Landlords Dale Webb and Kurt Olson lead this initiative with Steve Bernard and Pete Olson, Cedar Falls Utilities; Cortney Schiappa/ Matt Kostle/Tim Warren, Green Iowa AmeriCorps; and Craig Ceilley, contractor. The Community Action Committee is developing a community action pilot project to work with one neighborhood association. Neighbors will help neighbors make a plan for energy reduction and follow through with the plan. The process will include significant neighborhood input. Sarah Webb, Cool Congregations, and Carole Yates, city energy block grant co-facilitator, lead this effort with Brooke Argotsinger, UNI Green Project student group; Erin Buchanan, CFU; Sheena Wendt/Matt Kostle, Green Iowa AmeriCorps; Molly Taiber, Overman Park Neighborhood Association; and Tom Hagarty, City Council. The Energy Codes Committee led by Brad Leeper, architect, is reviewing a draft of the new International Green Construction Code and suggests the city remain aligned with “official” codes rather than trying to create its own. Leeper works with Joe Griffith, construction; Craig Ceilley, contractor; and John Streicher, UNI facilities senior engineer. Co-leaders of the Energy Action Network are Dave Williams, energy advocate, and Carole Yates, energy advocate, and communications staff at the UNI Center for Energy & Environmental Education.

%DUEHFXH6DIHW\7LSV ■ Position the grill well away from siding, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. ■ Place the grill a safe distance from lawn games, play areas, and foot traffic. ■ Keep children and pets away from the grill area by declaring a 3-foot “kid-free zone” around the grill. ■ Put out several long-handled grilling tools to give the chef plenty of clearance from heat and flames when cooking food. ■ Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below grill so it cannot be ignited by a hot grill. ■ Use only outdoors! Never use grills indoors or in closed spaces. Charcoal Grills ■ Purchase the proper starter fluid and store out of reach of children and away from heat sources. ■ Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals or kindling have ignited, never use combustible liquid other than charcoal starter fluid to get the fire going. Propane Grills ■ Check the propane cylinder hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. A light soap and water solution applied to the hose will reveal escaping propane quickly by releasing bubbles. ■ If you determined your grill has a gas leak by smell or the soapy bubble test and there is no flame: Turn off the propane tank and grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. ■ If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not attempt to move the grill. ■ All propane cylinders manufactured after April 2002 must have overfill protection devices (OPD). OPDs shut off the flow of propane before capacity is reached, limiting the potential for release of propane gas if the cylinder heats up. OPDs are easily identified by their triangular-shaped hand wheel. ■ Use only equipment bearing the mark of an independent testing laboratory. Follow the manufacturers’ instructions on how to set up the grill and maintain it. ■ Never store propane cylinders in buildings or garages. If you store a gas grill inside during the winter, disconnect the cylinder and leave it outside.


)LUH5HVFXHDVNV3DUHQWVWREH0LQGIXORI6SDUNOHUV Sparklers are Safe When Used Correctly According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(“CPSC”), approximately 16% of all consumer fireworks injuries are caused by sparklers burning hands and legs. These are injuries that would not have occurred if there had been close adult supervision. The National Council on Fireworks Safety recommends these steps... ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

Children under the age of 12 should not use sparklers without very close adult supervision. Always remain standing while using sparklers. Never hold a child in your arms while using sparklers. Never hold, or light, more than one sparkler at a time. Sparklers and bare feet can be a painful combination. Always wear shoes. Be sure to drop the spent sparklers in a container of water. Never hand a lighted sparkler to another person. Always stand at least 6 feet from another person while using sparklers. Never throw sparklers. Show children how to hold sparklers at arm’s length. Teach children not to wave sparklers or run with them.

Cedar Falls Fire Rescue urges residents to be Sparkler Smart this Fourth of July in their holiday celebrations. Visit: www.FireworksSafety.org.

&RGH(QIRUFHPHQW Code Enforcement in the City of Cedar Falls intensifies during the warmer months regarding property nuisance issues. These issues usually interfere with the comfortable enjoyment of life. A typical nuisance would include the storage of unsightly items or condition of the buildings. Any item not normally used in the day-to-day use of the exterior portion of the property that is stored outside and in public view is considered a nuisance. This can include, but not limited to, junk or unlicensed vehicles, debris, litter or trash in the yard, uncut grass, brush piles, discarded lumber, furniture or appliances, etc. A nuisance also includes poor maintenance of residential structures. A properly maintained house adds life and value to the property. A house that is not maintained ie. peeling paint, leaking roof, holes in the structure or foundation, broken windows or doors, unsecured gutters or downspouts, broken steps, etc. is considered a nuisance. The citizens of Cedar Falls appreciate good, clean and safe neighborhoods. Code compliance is an important responsibility for everyone. If you have any questions regarding code enforcement, please contact the Cedar Falls Zoning office at 273-8606.
