When the original Sheridan High School was constructed nearly 90 years ago, Big Goose Creek still had a natural flow pattern, and it was several decades before the flood control measures were put in place.
As development around the school continued, the hill east of the school has become less and less stable. Several stabilization projects were completed in the 1980’s that included retaining walls which are still in use.
Recent soil slides on the hill near what is now the Sheridan Junior High School have district officials making continued stabilization efforts a high priority. District 2 Facilities Director Julie Carroll.
Workers are doing temporary stabilization of the hillside, and should have a completed design in the near future. The slide is completely on School District property, and just north of the old retaining wall project.
