Irrigation at Tabor

To the Editor:

Tabor Academy is taking active steps to conform to and support the Town of Marion’s recent water ban. Our faculty and students have been notified about the restriction and will join with our Marion neighbors to refrain from non-essential water use during the restriction, and also to limit even essential uses. Townspeople may observe our grass fields and some other central areas being watered by our sprinkler system. We want residents to know that these sprinkler systems, as well as our watering truck for potted plants and flower beds, are always fed by our irrigation pond and do not draw from the Town’s water supply. With precipitation levels extremely low, we intend to use all water resources responsibly and sparingly. Tabor remains committed to conserving all resources, and to partnering with the Town wherever possible to ensure that our community’s shared resources are cared for in sustainable and healthy ways.

John Quirk, Head of School, Tabor Academy
