A rainwater retention pond will be part of the new additions to the Sevastopol school building. The district's CORE team learned more about that requirement at its' recent meeting on the site plan. The retention pond is required by the Department of Natural Resources because of the larger size of the building additions and the creation of 28 new parking spots. Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the pond must meet specific DNR requirements to handle the increased rain and snow runoff from the new facilities.
The CORE team also learned that the existing school greenhouse must be demolished before the second half of the 2019-2020 school year. That's in preparation for the start of construction next spring.
