Ecological Investigation

On October 30th a member of the Community filed a complaint with the Department of Ecology stating 4’ x 3’ oil puddle was discovered at Sofield Park.  Sudden Valley Security received a call immediately after the report was sent to Whatcom County Emergency Management Division.  Security notified the General Manager and the Fire Chief followed by staff responding to Sofield to locate and address the reported spill.

The materials discovered were determined to be natural by-products from decaying vegetation. The Association encounters similar issues each year.  The Department of Ecology was here the following day and offered to give an oil absorbent pad to the citizen who expressed the concern.  The issue is closed to the satisfaction of the professionals involved.  No further action required.

2018 Holiday Security Update

Happy Holidays to all of you in Sudden Valley!

We wanted to take a moment to let you know about some steps the Association takes to offer additional protection for you, your family, and your packages during the holiday.

How many of you will be ho-ho-home for the holidays?  We understand that many folks travel to see family and may still receive packages at home while away.  With USPS now delivering to doorsteps on Sundays simply to keep up with Amazon ordering, folks are often away from home when a package is delivered.

To help protect against porch/package thieves (known to follow delivery trucks), SVCA will again this year be working with Pacific Security to provide additional patrols to escort delivery trucks throughout our community.

Another protective service offered through SVCA and Pacific Security is home checks.  For a small fee, Security will physically inspect doors and windows on your property while you’re on vacation.  Stop by Admin to pick up a form in the magazine rack or find it online under Resident Resources.
