Text Box: By now most HVCA owners have probably noticed the huge rolls of orange conduit and piles of dirt making their way around Homeland Village.  Verizon subcontractors are installing underground fiber optic cables  in conduit within the utility easement areas of the community.  While the end result of this work may be good, the current headaches can be numerous.  Here are some tips to help you through these trying times:

Noise—construction noise is loud and county laws allow it to start after 7:00 a.m. weekdays and 9:00 a.m. weekends.  If contractors working in HVCA are not complying with the county noise requirements, contact Montgomery Co. DEP at 240-777-7770.
Text Box: Hazardous Conditions— in order to bury cable you have to dig.  While a little mess and unsightliness is inevitable, it should be remedied promptly.  If the contractor leaves a mess on the property for an extended period of time, or leaves a hazardous condition that is not properly barricaded and contained; please contact the contractor, NTI, at 410-796-7770.  If the problem is not remedied promptly, contact the Community Manager at 301-421-1001.
Light Poles Out??  Many times when a contractor works on HVCA property they will break or nick one of HVCA’s underground lighting cables and a string of lights goes out.  If you notice it’s dark in your area, and it appears to be more than one light, please Text Box: check out the extent of the outage and contact the Community Manager at 301-421-1001.
