"I have a question. When we were discussing the process, for Walter Johnson we were discussing removing a sprinkler system that had been installed and moving it to another school. Can you tell us how all of that played out?..."
The answer from MCPS Director of Facilities James Song included the following statement:
"We saved about 80% of the sod."
But in the August 16, 2010 ABC7 news story on the "relocating" of the brand new sod at Walter Johnson High School, that's the new sod that was removed to make way for an artificial turf field, the response from MCPS was:
"...And they acknowledge the grass field couldn't be recycled, as originally planned, because the weather prevented them from laying the sod down at Wheaton High School."Which was it Superintendent Weast?
Was the beautiful new sod football field, that had been used for only one football season at Walter Johnson High School, "relocated" to Wheaton High School, or was the beautiful new sod ripped up and hauled off in a dumpster?
