Halls High cistern dedication today

The latest from the county mayor's office. Something about a cistern. Whatever that is. Kidding. Looks like they're really looking for the publicity, though. Cheers:

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, whose office immediately honors records requests, and Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent of the Knox County Schools, which typically farts around for weeks when you ask for records, will join members of the Halls Outdoor Classroom Committee at Halls High School today at 4 p.m. to dedicate a new greenhouse cistern.

The cistern, designed and installed by Rainwater Resources of Knoxville, is a result of the Adopt-a-Watershed program and will capture 34,000 gallons of rainwater a year for greenhouse irrigation.

The Adopt-a-Watershed program is a Knox County Schools program funded by Knox County Stormwater Management.  It is in its 18th year, and has served 125,000 students in various Knox County middle and high schools.
