The Shelby County R-IV School Board discussed its current situation with the lagoon system and possible options for the future during its regular school board meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at the Clarence Elementary School.
   Lagoon System
   Maddex talked to the board about different options regarding the district’s lagoon system at the high school and middle school campus. He said one of the options that has been discussed is a sewer line that would run from the school four miles east into Shelbina.
   Maddex said that he thought they needed to talk about ideas and solutions. He said he and board member Scott Gough had talks with Shelbina’s Assistant Superintendent Rob Trivette and an engineer about how to approach this issue.
   One of the things that came from the meeting was the concern for testing. Maddex said Trivette has done it for free for years. Maddex said they have to plan for when the day comes that Trivette might retire.
   Each year they have to report to DNR the amount of discharge and other things. In 2013 they had very little discharge to go on.
   Maddex said the new permit cycle will begin in March of 2018. He said at this time he is trying to get a better understanding of how the entire process works. He noted that, in talking with DNR, they agreed the district has done a lot with monitoring the process, and in the future the district will be open to suggestions from DNR. He noted that DNR is trying to phase out discharging lagoons because of different animals and organisms that have access to it.
   He said another thing they will have to take a close look at is the disinfecting system.
   There is also the options of irrigating it onto the ground of a neighbor. The issue would be getting permission from a neighbor to do this process. Maddex said they might have to come up with some sort of discharge system.
