FRACKVILLE - Two Frackville teens requested permission Wednesday to undertake a project to alleviate drainage issues at the Teener league field.
Jake Nahas and Robert Oravitz, both North Schuylkill students, spoke to council about their project.
"For our senior project, we chose to address and correct the drainage issues at the Frackville Teener league field. As many of you are aware, this has been a problem for many years," said Nahas. "In addressing this issue, I was able to acquire, through Home Depot, all of the drainage pipe and sleeves to complete the project."
Nahas noted that all materials were donated by Home Depot, with the assistance of David Seresky, who Nahas thanked. Nahas noted that two other individuals had offered their assistance with heavy equipment and such. Manual labor would be performed by Nahas and Oravitz.
The project is estimated to last a day, and alleviate drainage in the area of the baselines, installing 250-feet of pipe to drain water out to a nearby alleyway.
Council approved the project unanimously.
"Alright, boys, good luck on your project," said council president Ron Jordan after the vote.
