What are those stakes near PHS?
Perkins Schools superintendent Jim Gunner provided the following response:
The township has requested the school district address concerns they have with water lines from the township into school district buildings.
Township officials have asked the school district to install back flow preventers on all incoming water lines into our school district. These stakes are meant to help locate the incoming water lines so they can be dug up, back flow preventer (be) installed and then re-graded.
This will ensure the safety of the overall township water supply, should there ever be a problem at one or more of our school buildings.This work will take place at all district facilities sometime over the next couple of years.
Total cost is expected to be over $70,000.
