Springs Septic Update

According to the Springs School’s website, excavation of the school’s septic system continues, and progress — as far as locating leaching pools — has been made. Debra Winter, the school’s superintendent, writes that all work will be completed by the end of August.

“Work on the school’s septic system has begun,” the school says, “and at the end of the first week of excavating, a total of 11 pools were uncovered. Nine have been raised with chimneys, two are being evaluated to determine if they are part of the system, and two broken pipes have been repaired. All pools have been pumped out. The pumps, which are not reparable, will be replaced by similar pumps. The control panel is operational and will operate with new pumps.”
