The Adams County Record Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Page 11 BY DALE FlSK A group of volunteers dug in (literally) to get heating and cooling connected to the Council High School shop building from the biomass planton Saturday. ACCO Engineered Systems out of Garden City is helping with the project, and arrived in Council on Monday to connect the system to the new plumbing. ACCO is a national company, and the manager at the Boise location has been very generous to, and cooperative with, Council High School. Among other things,ACCO monitors and adjusts water treatment at the biomass plant to make sure the nitrite level is sufficient to kill bacteria in the water. The new shop teacher has officially been hired, and later this summer he will be preparing the shop for classes. Two of these well-insulted pipes were buried in the trench-one to send water and one to return it. The insulation prevents heat loss on the way to the shop and is an extra measure of protection against freez- ing for the return line. The trench ready to bury the pipe. School board chairman, Wayne Freedman, got the fun job of drilling a hole in the side of the concrete vault, inside of which the new lines were connected to the existing water lines to the green- house.
