The information below has been sent out to residents via our emailing system on the dates and times listed. If you are not part of our emailing system and would like to receive important emails such as the ones below, please click HERE and follow the prompts.

Update September 6th at 2 PM:

During our initial assessment of the island post Hurricane Dorian, we are happy to report that the island did not sustain any severe damage. We do have quite a few reported downed trees and a good bit of debris, but for the most part, Daniel Island weathered the storm well.

POA Maintained Common Areas, Greenways, Bike Paths, Trails, Parks, and Amenities:

The Daniel Island POA Field Operations Team along with The Greenery and additional subcontractors are continuing to work on storm cleanup following Hurricane Dorian in all of the POA owned and maintained property such as trails, common areas, green ways, bike paths, and at our amenities. We are working with the City of Charleston to accomplish the removal of all storm and yard debris. We would like to remind you that there are still some hazardous areas, so as you and your children are out and about, please be aware and refrain from pulling/hanging on tree limbs that may be leaning or compromised from the storm or those that may still be in a trail or pathway. Over the next several weeks, we will be working with our various contractors and engineers to pick up debris and continue to assess damage throughout the island. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to bring the island back to its pre-storm condition for everyone’s safety and enjoyment.

Amenities:
All amenities on Daniel Island have been assessed for damage and have or will reopen shortly.

  • The Pierce Park Pool and Edgefield Pool are currently open for resident use.
  • The Scott Park Pool will reopen tomorrow, Saturday, September 7th by 12 PM
  • The Ralston Creek and Beresford Creek boat landings are currently open for resident use.

Reporting Downed, Leaning or Damaged Trees: 

  • City Trees – (Trees located between the curb and the sidewalk)
  • Personal Property Trees – (Trees on your personal property that are not street trees)
    • Any tree that is on someone’s personal property is the owners’ responsibility to remove if fallen. If a tree must be removed, please send a picture of the tree with your address to reportaproblem@dicommunity.org along with the species of tree if known. This information is helpful to the POA/ARB office should the tree need to be replaced.
  • POA Maintained Property: (i.e., boat landings, pools, amenities, trails, parks (with the exception of Governors, Freedom, and Etiwan which are City parks), common areas, and ponds)
    • For all other issues regarding POA maintained property, please email reportaproblem@dicommunity.org. Any descriptive information you can send, including what the damage is, the address/location of the issue, and a photo of the problem is very much appreciated. The POA Field Operations Staff and POA Landscape Contractors will follow up on these reportaproblem@dicommunity.org email and assess the concern once they are able to perform an onsite inspection.

Our POA “report a problem” email address – which is reportaproblem@dicommunity.org is working very efficiently. We would like to thank all of those who have submitted issues through that email address thus far and we encourage anyone who may have identified storm related issues to continue to use this email address. If you have already sent the problem in via that email address, please know that we have received it and have dispatched it to the appropriate contacts. Please do not resend any previously submitted “report a problem” email to us as we do not want to create duplicates.

Scheduled Events/Activities:

We have 2 events that were scheduled to take place this weekend that are cancelled or postponed until further notice. Please see below for more details:

  • The Daniel Island Friday Night Market – Lowcountry Farmers Markets, LLC has made the choice to cancel the last market of the season. In the meantime, check out their new Farmers Market coming to Daniel Island starting Saturday, September 14th from 8 AM – 1 PM at Providence Baptist Church (294 Seven Farms Drive).
  • The 9/11 Heroes Run has been postponed until further notice. Updates on this event including their reschedule date will be posted to the POA website (www.dicommunity.org) as soon as it becomes available.

Damage Assessment:

City damage assessment teams have been mobilized and are ready to be deployed to identify impacted areas and document storm-related damage. The City has indicated that their signal recovery and initial debris clearing crews are prepared for deployment throughout the city to address signal outages and downed trees as conditions allow.

Reporting of Storm Related Damage:

To help with the city’s assessments, citizens are asked to report ALL storm-related damages at https://gis.charleston-sc.gov/report-damage/ or by calling the city of Charleston Citizen Information Line at 843-973-7219 or 843-724-7311 in addition to the direct contacts below if applicable.

Storm damage to homes should be addressed as soon as possible by the individual homeowner, including things such as downed or leaning trees that could cause a hazard to homes or persons, damaged fences, damaged shutters, and other related damages.

If private fences were damaged by the Hurricane, a property owner can repair it as needed as long as it matches the existing location, materials, and color. If a property owner wants to change anything about the fence, then the changes would need to be submitted to the ARB for review.

Garbage, Trash & Yard Debris Pickup:

Per the City of Charleston – Garbage and trash pickup by the City/Republic Services will begin on Monday, September 9th. If the City is unable to complete garbage on Monday, September 9th, they will return on Tuesday, September 10th to finish. The City/Republic will pick up normal “yard debris” beginning on Monday, September 9th, but “storm related debris” will be picked up later as they determine the extent of that type of debris. The City has indicated that residents can place the storm debris curbside, but they do not have a date as to when specific pickup will take place. The City/Republic will be working with Berkeley County on this storm debris removal. If you currently use or will be using a landscape contractor to take care of maintaining your lawn or if you have hired a contractor to perform post storm cleanup of any kind including removal of normal yard debris and storm debris, please make sure that you instruct the contractor to take away all debris and not place it at the curb for pickup by the City/Republic. This will help greatly in clearing the streets of debris in a timely manner. It is also a requirement of the City that this take place by landscape contractors. The POA would also like to remind all owners not to move or relocate their debris onto POA maintained common property or an undeveloped or open lots for removal by the POA or their landscape contractors as this is not allowed.

Please Note – If your garbage or yard debris is somehow missed and not picked up, please be sure to follow the directions below in reporting the non-pickup to the City of Charleston.

Reporting Garbage and Yard Debris Not Collected:
The Daniel Island POA office would like to remind all owners that if they encounter missed garbage or yard debris collection, they should contact the City of Charleston Environmental Services Department directly via their online reporting system to report when garbage or yard debris is not collected. The City has stated that this is the preferred method of reporting garbage not collected. Garbage and yard debris are normally picked up on Mondays with the exception of special holiday schedule changes.

Whether your complaint is that no pick up occurred or that partial pickup occurred, the protocol for reporting both is the same – to use the City’s online reporting system.

To report that your trash or yard debris was not collected, click the link below to connect directly to the City’s online reporting system: https://charlestonsc.mycusthelp.com/webapp/_rs/(S(q0jrlgvucadds3towyig5o03))/RequestOpen.aspx?sSessionID=&rqst=73

The City of Charleston link below includes additional information on Garbage Collection: https://sc-charleston-old.civicplus.com/index.aspx?nid=346

*Note: Using this reporting method to create a work order/record tracks your submission for reporting your address when your garbage or yard debris has not been collected.

The City contracts with Republic Services who is the subcontractor to the City. The Supervisor of the Environmental Services Department, Matt Alltop would like the residents of Daniel Island to report these incidences to his department and not to Republic Services since the City manages the contract with Republic.

Should you have additional questions regarding the City of Charleston garbage and yard debris pickup, please contact the Superintendent, Matt Alltop at alltopm@charleston-sc.gov or at 843-720-3882.

Update September 5th at 5 PM:

Now that it seems that the worst of Hurricane Dorian has left our area, we are aware that some owners have been impacted with storm related damage, some more than others.  We wanted to remind everyone about current as well as post storm reporting of damage, whether it be out in the community or on one’s private property.  We very much appreciate everyone’s “eyes on the ground” and we thank those of you who have utilized our preferred reportaproblem@dicommunity.org email address system for reporting storm related damage concerns.
