As reported in the June 2016 BOE Recap, the Elizabeth School District was awarded $1,411,376 in grant funding for a new waste water treatment system at Singing Hills Elementary and a new roof at Elizabeth High School. This is in addition to $345,768 the District was awarded in 2015 for the new roof that was recently completed at SHE.
These two new projects are moving forward and are currently in the design stage. Both projects are necessary due to their age and their inability to function properly. The current wastewater treatment system needs to be updated to meet new state guidelines and does not pose any safety or health concerns. A public notice sign has been placed on the Singing Hills Elementary school property where the new system will be installed.
While most of the wastewater treatment system will be underground, there will be a small building approximately ten feet by ten feet, located in the north end of the empty field. It is anticipated that the system will be installed in the summer of 2017.
