Biomass Boiler Considered For Parkdale Elementary

Hood River County and the Hood River County School District are moving forward with determining the feasibility of  putting in a long-discussed biomass boiler at Parkdale Elementary School.  The school currently uses oil for heat.  County Administrator David Meriwether says some preliminary analysis has already done, and more is in progress.  A wood chip or pellet boiler would be able to use biomass from Hood River County forests.  Parkdale Elementary has been considered for the boiler because it does not have access to natural gas, and there are no plans to bring that service there in the foreseeable future.  Meriwether expects the feasibility to be determined in a few months.
