CVOA Statement Concerning Main Line Breaks

There are many miles of main irrigation lines that run through Columbia Village.  These lines area located in common areas or easement boundaries adjacent to homeowners. Columbia Village is just one of many who use these lines for irrigation and shares the cost of maintaining these lines with many. Breaks in the mainline are impossible to predict, but when they are identified, they are repaired immediately. The Board recommends that homeowners maintain insurance to cover the cost of repair/remediation in the event of damage caused by a main line break.

If you see what you think may be a main line break, please call the CVOA office at 208-433-0643 immediately.  If it is after hours, you will be directed to who to call in the event of an emergency.

Common Area Under Power Lines and Idaho Power

Did you know the property under the power lines is owned by CVOA? Idaho Power does not own or maintain the property under the power lines. CVOA has the ownership and maintenance in those areas.  Your volunteer board does their best to help maintain these areas on existing budget dollars.  Idaho Power only maintains the ability to keep their transmission lines free of hazards.  If you have a question, suggestion, or concern for those areas, please contact DSI who can forward them to the Landscape and Maintenance Committee.  Do not contact Idaho Power for maintenance or landscaping issues. 

Lawn Maintenance

As a Board, one of our goals is keep Columbia Village a great place to live. This spring and summer, CVOA will be actively addressing lawn maintenance issues throughout all of Columbia Village.  Please treat weeds as needed.
