OSB changes WHS sewer route
Action by Oconee school trustees establishes a slightly-altered route to run sewer pipe to what will be the new Walhalla High School at Picket Post. Last night the trustees approved a route of highway 11, from Scenic Heights Baptist Church to Cane Creek. The original route left 11 near the church. “This should clear our engineers, Design South, to bid the project soon so that construction can begin,” said Dr. Michael Thorsland, assistant superintendent of operations for Oconee schools. Bob Winchester, executive director of the Joint Regional Sewer Authority, said plans for the sewer arrived yesterday at his office. By this morning, Winchester said he had not had time to look at the plans, but will.
