No time wasted on school wastewater project

After taking years for the town to resolve issues surrounding the school wastewater treatment plant, the actual construction by J. D'Amico contractors is proceeding without delay.

Last week plant components were delivered by tractor-trailers and placed inside the building at the Banta-Davis site off Bedford Road. The brown split-block building is set back from the driveway on the right before the upper playing fields.

The aerobic and anoxic Rotating Biological Contactor units and their holding tanks and the filter and clarifying equipment are in place, allowing roof construction to start this week. The treatment plant is expected to begin operating by the end of the school year in the late spring. D'Amico construction has been very conscientious and considerate of the town, says school Business Manager Steven Moore, from the time the project began with digging the trenches from the school to Banta-Davis last summer, through the present building construction stage.
