law! This includes cats too!
• Do not allow dogs to bark continuously disturbing neighbors.
The trash days for Aberdeen Green are Monday and Thursday. Contact
WCA Waste at 281-368-8397 if you have any issues or questions regarding
trash pick up.
HOW TO WINTERIZE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM
Winterizing a sprinkler system requires a homeowner to know the type of
system installed. Proper care and maintenance in the fall prevents heartache
over cracked pipes, ruined seals and broken valves in the spring. Damage to an
underground irrigation system is costly to fix and may require a large portion of
the yard to be dug out to locate the problem. Most systems have a built-in manual
or automatic drain valve that uses gravity to move water from the pipes. Yet the
thin tubing used in irrigation systems has a tendency to shift and sink over time.
This movement allows water to become pooled within the pipes. Any water left
behind has the potential to destroy the plastic and metal within the system as it
expands in freezing temperatures. Winterizing is fairly easy to learn and most doit-yourselfers
already own the necessary tools for the job. To completely remove
water from the system, a purge must be completed using compressed air. Follow
these steps to “blow out” an underground sprinkler system.
Step 1 - Shut Off the Water Supply: All underground sprinkler systems
have a main shut off point. For safety, it is usually located in a basement,
a crawlspace, or buried underground in a valve box. Valve boxes are
buried up to 5 feet underground and may require a long key to shut off. If
the original key cannot be located, contact the contractor that installed
the system or the manufacturer to obtain a replacement. The shut-off
valve should turn easily - do not force it. Simply turn the valve to the
“off” position. If the system operates with a pump, this will need to be
drained, disconnected, and stored indoors for the winter. If it is not a
removable variety, wrap it in insulated blanketing for the winter. This can
be purchased at the hardware store and is similar to insulation used for
hot water heaters.
November 2019 | Aberdeen Green
Step 2 - Purge the Backflow Device. Sprinkler heads in a lawn. Systems
that run from community water usually have one of two kinds of
backflow devices: an Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker (AVB) or a Pressure
Vacuum Breaker (PVB). Sometimes a PVB is also called a Reduced
Pressure Device. If the system is supplied with privately owned water,
check the installation plan. If no backflow device was installed, then the
homeowner can skip this step. AVBs are installed below each valve and
are purged with the system. PVBs should not be purged with compressed
air because the heat may cause them to soften and melt. After the system
is purged, return to the PVB and rotate the ball valves and test cocks
back and forth several times. Then, leave them in a half-open position to
prevent moisture from building up on either side of the valves. Draining a
Reduced Pressure Device is much more complicated, and a homeowner
should refer to their manufacturers’ instructions to find the correct
procedure for their device.
Step 3 - Drain the System: Compressed air is a great way to ensure all of
the water is removed from the pipes and valves in the downstream, a
portion of the system. Both pressure and air volume must reach a critical
point to completely purge the system. A range of 40-80 pounds per square
inch (psi) is ideal, with 80 psi being the maximum for rigid PVC tubing and
50 psi for a polyethylene pipe. To find the appropriate volume, use this
simple formula: gallons per minute (GPM) divided by 7.5 equals the cubic
feet per minute of compressed air necessary. Most sprinkler systems are
given a GPM rating per zone at the time of installation. Since each system
has a unique design, the GPM is marked on the original design plan. If
needed, this can also be calculated based on the information provided
in the manufacturer’s instructions or on their website. Essentially, the
zone GPM is calculated by adding up the GPM for each nozzle within
the zone. Find the GPM rating for the different nozzle models on the
manufacturers’ website. Use a compressor providing the proper CFM of
air within the correct psi range. If a smaller compressor is used it will take
much longer for a complete purge and will overwork the compressor.
An oversized compressor can still be used as long as it is fitted with a
regulator, without an air pressure regulator the system will “blow out”
too fast causing friction as the hot air passes through dry pipes. This will
result in melted pipes and blown valves - a costly mistake. The backflow
device must have a blowout fitting downstream. If not, compressed air
cannot be used to purge the system, but one can be added any time
after installation. While a metal fitting for the air compressor line is not
required, it will reduce the amount of friction and heat passed into the
system and will prevent unnecessary damage to the system.

Attach the compressor line to the blowout valve. Be sure the isolation
ball cock downstream of the backflow device is closed. During this step,
you should wear eyewear protection. Any loose fittings or nozzles may
pop off unexpectedly and can cause injury. Turn on one or more of the
zones at the irrigation controller and set the compressor to the correct
psi and start it up.
Use two short cycles of compressed air to completely blow out each zone.
Once a zone is blown out do not run it through again. This will cause
undue heat to build up and may cause damage to the pipes underground
that will not be visible until the system is turned on in the spring.
Step 4 - Program the Controller - Four sprinkler heads in a row.
After disconnecting the air compressor, make sure to turn all valves on
the backflow prevention device to the half-open position for the winter.
Also, leave the controller plugged in since the small amount of heat it
gives off will prevent condensation from building up inside the device.
Program the controller to run at a minimum cycle once a week to keep
the solenoid plungers from becoming stuck in one position.
In the spring, remember to turn all the test cocks and ball valves to the
closed position again before pressurizing the system. When the water
supply is re-established, slowly reopen the ball valves to prevent damage.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA -
For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found
in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant
in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting
helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership
skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities
that allow them to:
• Try new things. • Provide service to others.
• Build self-confidence. • Reinforce ethical standards.
Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as
individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility
and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,
peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting
through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which
help our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam
Houston Area Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout
Packs (boys 5 to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old)
and 10 Venturing units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically
Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools
including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,
Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,
Tipps, Walker and Wilson.
Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,
Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,
Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield
Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village
HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church
and Thornton Middle School.

Philmont and Seabase. Our advancement program has enabled scout to
achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout at 10 times the national average
rate. We see scouting as a practice run on adult life. Scouts learn about
leadership and teamwork through having to work together in the field.
We learn about responsibility through fund-raising activities that have
allowed the entire troop to pay for their own summer camp each year.

HOUSTON MAYOR AND HOUSTON AUDUBON
EXECUTIVE ANNOUNCE THE BIRD OF HOUSTON
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner alongside Houston Audubon’s Executive
Director, Helen Drummond, proclaimed the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
as the official Bird of Houston. In an effort to increase awareness of the
birds around us, Houston Audubon coordinated the Bird of Houston
contest, where Houstonians voted on their favorite local bird through a
series of bracket rounds. Over 60 bird species were originally nominated,
leading to the final round, which pitted the Attwater’s Prairie-Chicken
against the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron.
Houston’s location on the central flyway is a vital stopover for migratory
birds and a welcoming, year-round, home to our resident bird. Not
only do birds need our city to thrive, but Houston needs a healthy bird
population. Birds are essential to human welfare thanks to the many
ecosystem services they provide, from pollination and pest-control, to
clean-up and seed dispersal. A representative Bird of Houston is just the
thing to connect our residents to their avian neighbors.
The Bird of Houston announcement coincides with Houston Bird
Week celebration from September 21 st until September 28 th , in honor
of Houston Audubon’s 50 th anniversary. Houston Audubon’s Young
Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation
partners have created educational, fun and celebratory events across the
Houston metro area for the whole family. To view the calendar of events,

areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.
It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to
eliminate those low spots.
• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow
on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.
• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.
• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.
• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now
will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and
allow to mellow.
• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.
• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;
they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.
• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.
• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
