      Flumes In PGA

         Northern Palm Beach County Improvement District
      (“Northern”) owns and maintains the major roadways
      within the PGA National Community. Northern is also
      responsible for the overall storm water management system
      in the PGA National development. In addition to the three
      storm water pump stations within the development, an
      integral part of the drainage system are concrete flumes
      and gutters located along the main roads and, in some
      instances, in the grass swales. These concrete flumes and
      gutters provide an efficient conduit for the water to travel
      to the appropriate catch basins and improve the overall
      function of the storm water management system.
         These concrete flumes and gutters however, are not
      designed for pedestrian traffic. They are designed to
      convey water. People should not use them as walkways.
      The flumes and gutters can be slippery, particularly when
      they are wet. Whether they are wet or dry, they are not
      intended for pedestrian traffic and Northern respectfully
      requests  that  pedestrians  use  the  many  sidewalks  and
      pathways that are available within PGA National to walk
      on, not the concrete drainage flumes.
