Dawn M. Chapel, a hydrogeologist with Pacific Groundwater Group, marks down drainage rates at one of several test pits on a property off Highway 525. It’s being considered for purchase by the Freeland Water and Sewer District, and the consulting firm was on site Monday and Tuesday conducting the third and final phase of testing — measuring drainage capacity. “It’s perking pretty good,” said Chapel, adding that this pit was draining about four gallons a minute. The district is hoping the entire site can handle up to 200 gallons a minute, and according to district manager Andy Campbell (center) the property is looking promising.
