GLASS IN THE GRASS IS A PROBLEM AT UW-P
The rebuild at UW-Platteville may be ahead of schedule. Construction crews have been swarming the campus after the June 16th tornado, rebuilding three dorms, the main engineering building and Pioneer Stadium. The Director of Facilities Management at UW-P is Pete Davis. says some buildings may be okay to have people in them by August 10th, which is five-days ahead of the deadline set by the university. But another major issue, the broken glass that’s in the lawns and fields on campus.
He says because the practice field at Jay Street and Southwest Road is going to eventually be redone with artificial surface, it more than likely won’t be resodded. By the way, the glass stays around forever. Officials at Gustavus Adolphus College at St. Peter, Minnesota say it’s been 16-years since a tornado caused damage to their campus, and people are still finding glass in the lawns. The 1998 twister reportedly damaged 80% of the windows campus buildings.
