You have to protect your investment.

Friday morning’s heavy rains and flooding triggered the first deployment of the tarping system at Rye High School’s Nugent Stadium. The tarping system protects the new turf field by holding the field materials in place and protecting the surface from any sediment or contaminant in the water that may flood from the Blind Brook. The brook curls around two sides of the field and is subject to flooding.

Rob Gimigliano, the school district’s director of facilities, determines when the tarp rolls based on expected rainfall and tidal surge. Luigi Liotta, head custodian, then directs this crew to deploy the tarp to protect our turf.
