HEAVY RAINFALL UPDATE

 

The Village has received an exceptional amount of rainfall over the last four weeks. In just the last 24 hours we have received more than 4 inches of rain Village-wide.

Projected rainfall totals tell us those levels will continue to increase. We understand that water levels are high, it is based on the heavy amount of rain falling in a short amount of time.

We appreciate your patience as we work to keep you updated regarding the potential for localized flooding. 

 Vegetation & Debris Collection Update

 

Wellington contractors have cleared the Village’s roadways of Hurricane Irma debris and have begun making multiple passes through neighborhoods to continue picking up storm-generated debris. Your patience is necessary and greatly appreciated as we systematically collect storm debris.

Residents should place storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way, the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, utility pole, or easement. Make sure the debris pile is clear of storm drains and any obstacles including mail boxes, utility poles, vehicles, water meter vault, fire hydrant, or any other above-ground utility.

PHASE 1 – First Pass: Wellington has contracted with a private debris removal companies to assist with hurricane recovery. Crews have already cleared our major streets and thoroughfares of vegetative debris. Wellington debris removal contractors are collecting storm-generated debris in neighborhoods throughout the Village. The contractors will make multiple passes through Village neighborhoods to collect hurricane debris, so neighbors will have more than one opportunity to place hurricane debris out for collection. We thank our neighbors for their patience as we work together to get Wellington back to normal.   

 PHASE 2 – Second Pass: In 3-4 weeks, crews will begin removal of non-vegetative hurricane debris (i.e. fences, shingles, screens, roofing materials, etc.) along with any vegetative debris not collected during the first phase.

Debris Pickup Schedule


Wellington continues its recovery efforts with Public Works crews working around the clock to clear debris from our roads and public-rights-of-way in the wake of Hurricane Irma. 

WASTE COLLECTION UPDATE: Wellington contractors have cleared the Village’s roadways of Hurricane Irma debris and have begun making multiple passes through neighborhoods to pick up storm-generated debris. Your patience is greatly appreciated as we systematically collect storm debris. Residents should place storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way, the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, utility pole, or easement. Make sure the debris pile is clear of storm drains and any obstacles including mailboxes, utility poles, vehicles, water meter vault, fire hydrant, or any other above-ground utility.

VEGETATION DEBRIS REMOVAL: Any vegetation should be placed at the curb for pickup. Please do not bag any vegetation. DO NOT mix vegetation with any other trash. Wellington debris removal contractors will make multiple passes through all Village neighborhoods to collect hurricane debris, so neighbors will have more than one opportunity to place hurricane debris out for collection. We thank our neighbors for their patience as we work together to get Wellington back to normal.   

MOSQUITO CONTROL UPDATE: Due to a large mosquito hatch after Hurricane Irma, the Palm Beach County Division of Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying in the Western communities beginning at sunset starting September 25th, weather permitting.  In the meantime, please call the AIR SPRAY HOTLINE at 561-642-8775
to receive information about tonight's spray - if it was successful or if it has been postponed.

    For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

    1. A tropical wave is producing a large area of showers and
    thunderstorms about 1200 miles southwest of the southern tip of
    the Baja California peninsula. This system has become better
    organized during the past 24 hours, and further development is
    possible during the next several days while it moves quickly
    westward.

    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

    2. An area of low pressure is expected to form this weekend several
    hundred miles southwest of Mexico. Environmental conditions
    support some slow development of this system early next week
    while it moves westward or west-northwestward well southwest of
    Mexico.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

    3. Another area of low pressure is likely to form early next week
    several hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico.
    Conditions appear conducive for some development of this system next
    week while it moves westward to west-northwestward at around
    10 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
