Representatives of the county Board of Education asked Union Bridge officials last night to consider allowing Francis Scott Key High School to hook up to the town's sewage system.But the president of the Town Council was cool to the proposal."I'm not crazy about this idea," said Bret D. Grossnickle. "We don't provide water and sewer to a property unless it's annexed. I don't know what we would do about that."Town attorney John T. Maguire II told the council that there is "probably a way" to grant the school board's request "without getting into the sewer business outside town."

THE CARROLL County commissioners are taking the responsible step to fix the school board's botched job of a new sewage system at Francis Scott Key High School. It's a justifiable move toward the county government assuming greater control of school construction.Faced with an illegal new sewage treatment plant at Key High in Union Bridge, and no place to discharge the waste, the school board passed the problem to the commissioners. Rather than jumping at the first proposed remedy, the commissioners reasonably called for bids on the project.

Carroll officials are one step closer to receiving a state discharge permit the county needs to operate the idle wastewater treatment plant at Francis Scott Key High School on the outskirts of Union Bridge. The Maryland Department of the Environment held a public hearing in the high school's auditorium last night to give concerned residents a chance to comment before state officials make a final decision. About a dozen people attended the meeting. If approved, the discharge permit would allow the county to release treated sewage from the plant - a $768,000 facility the school system built in 1998 without obtaining required state permits - into nearby wetlands, said Doug Myers, county public works director.

Carroll officials are seeking state approval for a newly designed discharge system at Francis Scott Key High School's idle sewage treatment plant. A permit from the Maryland Department of the Environment is required before the county can release treated sewage into 3 acres of wooded wetlands. Plans call for laying about 3,000 feet of pipe to dry stream beds, which would act as conduits for the treated water, said J. Michael Evans, county director of public works. "This plan may actually help regenerate the forest," Evans said.

"THE HARDEST PART of this year happened when the yearbooks came in on Thursday, and we started passing them around for signing," said Elizabeth Kurrle, a graduating senior at Francis Scott Key High School."I wasn't prepared for it.
