EVERSON, Wash. (AP) - An inspection of the septic system at Nooksack Valley High School in Everson this month discovered there was no drain field and sewage went into a storm sewer that emptied into a ditch.
Kyle Dodd of the Whatcom County Health Department doesn't know how long the problem has been occurring. The septic system was installed in 1956.
The Bellingham Herald reports ( http://is.gd/GTnizc) sewage will be held in a holding tank at the school and trucked to the Everson treatment plant until the school district comes up with a long-term fix.
School starts on Wednesday.
