The photo below shows the former site of Bates School being dug out for construction of new buildings for Fayetteville High School. Springs there provided drinking water for the Cherokees who camped there on their way to the Indian Territory to the west. People who live downstream along the Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River have questioned how rainwater will be managed from the site. Underground temporary holding tanks were mentioned by people planning the new campus buildings. But what are they finding as they break through the bedrock?
