On Sept. 15, Environmental Planner Maureen Fitzgerald issued a second violation order to the board of education for work at the high school project. It was issued for the same reason as the first: unauthorized discharge of sediment.
The violation was noticed on Sept. 8, after a week of heavy rains. Sediment-laden water was released from the storm water basin to wetlands, along with other sediment discharges, Fitzgerald wrote in her violation order.
, a corrective plan was ordered by the conservation commission. The board is now following the plan, according to school superintendent Jerome Belair.
Belair said this second violation served as another wake-up call for C.J. Fucci, the company charged with all the site work on the project. Additionally, O & G Industries, which the board of education has hired to manage the project, is on Fucci, Belair said.
Planning Director Thomas Wagner and Fitzgerald are also following up with Fucci, along with a consultant Fucci had to hire after the first violation order, Belair said. At the school building committee meeting Tuesday night, Wagner said things weren’t perfect at the site, although Fucci was doing a better job of cooperating.
“I believe they are making progress,” he said.
The board of education will have to go to the conservation commission Thursday night to discuss both remediating the sediment.
