Septic issues surface at Woodland Elementary


Tuesday, April 1, 2014 - 1:30 p.m. - Maintenance crews from the Mariposa County Unified School District (MCUSD) have been working during the past month to get a kindergarten classroom at Woodland Elementary School (WES) reopened after a toilet backed up, leaving feces and wastewater on a carpet near the bathroom.

According to district maintenance coordinator Charlotte Kelsey, the problem with the March 19 backup was fixed after the maintenance department snaked the toilet in classroom 17 and it was discovered that sanitary wipes and a series of root balls were present in the school’s septic system. The blockage was removed and the carpet was cleaned and bathroom sanitized.

Even with the sanitizing of the affected area, because of health concerns, Kelsey said the classroom would remain closed until the district could install new carpet and tile in the affected area.
