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:

    The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
    Storm Daniel, located several hundred miles west-southwest of the
    southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

    1. An elongated area of low pressure is located a few hundred miles
    south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Development of this system
    is not expected before it merges with a low pressure area
    approaching from the southeast in a couple of days.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

    2. Shower activity associated with a broad low pressure area located
    about 600 miles south of eastern Mexico has become better organized
    during the last 24 hours. Additional development is forecast, and
    a tropical depression is expected to form later this week while the
    system moves generally west-northwestward, well south of the coast
    of Mexico.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

    3. A tropical wave over the southwestern Caribbean Sea should move into
    the eastern Pacific tonight or Tuesday. Gradual development of this
    system is expected as it moves westward away from Central America,
    and a tropical depression is likely to form by the end of this week.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
