Thanks to City Barbs for the news tip. Click on image to go there.
Silly you. WRONG! You just go to the DeKalb Sanitary District’s website and read their minutes.
Yep Mac, not the school districts web site for sure. City Barbs and DeKalb County Online will break the important stories faster.
When you go to the Sanitary Districts web site, go down about half way down the minutes to IN PLAN REVIEW, MIKE ZIMA……. and read on to the end. Not a lot written down by the official minutes taker but enough to get the point out.
Black Knight referred to a black pipe (cast iron) vs. PVC problem. I'm not sure Mac if this is sewer line problem or a water problem. Cast iron is used for both systems and I'm almost betting the problem is in the water side or city water being supplied to the school. City of DeKalb might be concerned with water pressures. I had to use cast iron for my water service when I developed the Gardens of Rivermist site. This would take into account fire hydrants also. I'm also guessing that the sprinkler system would be cast iron also. Remember the City of DeKalb now allows PVC under concrete for sewer pipe and I'm not sure but I do think that would also be the same for commercial which I think the school might actually fall under.
The lift would be a completely separate issue. I'm not sure how they will do it though. With no basement area where a lift could be built there will probably have to be a structure designed outside the building for the pump and maintenace of the pump. That'll look real impressive next to the school.
