Sylvester Field Adds Stormwater System

Sylvester Field Adds Stormwater System

A giant yellow stormwater detention and filtration system is now underground in the heart of the new Sylvester Field. This system will help control stormwater and protect Miller Creek.

Despite soil test borings, we encountered some surprises during excavation, including a sizable tree trunk and old construction debris that slowed us down and required more imported soil.

Concrete curbs were poured for the edges of the track and field.

We remain on target to open the field for students to use in September. Below are photos of the stormwater system and our construction progress.
