Maple Hill High School On Schedule to Have Village Water for School Year

MHHS is on track to have village water when school starts in September as work over the summer is proceeding on schedule. As part of a Capital Project proposition that voters approved in May, 59-year-old water mains in the school’s basement are being replaced and the school is being connected to village water. "The village water hookup in front of the school has been completed and workers are installing pipe to connect to the boiler room," said Buildings and Grounds Superintendent Matt LaClair. "Asbestos abatement in the basement is on schedule and we expect the High School to be off well water when school opens in September."
