SEEDA Grants Vacutech Request, Authorizes Wells for Weatherby

The Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority granted a request for Vacutech to store finished products in an area where an expansion to the plant will eventually be added, and voted to install monitoring wells on the site of Weatherby in Sheridan's High-Tech Park.

Action came in a special meeting of the SEEDA Joint Powers Board Friday. SEEDA Administrator Robert Briggs said Vacutech had asked for use of part of the plant expansion area.

Briggs said the site in question is part of the area west of the existing Vacutech parking lot, where a 40,000 square foot expansion will be added to the plant's building.

Briggs said the issue with Weatherby was a result of groundwater on the site.

The SEEDA board voted to install monitoring wells to get a better idea of the extent of groundwater and where the water is flowing. Briggs said the installation is to be done as soon as possible.
