GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Greenville Utilities is spending $ 2 million to repair and replace portions of deteriorating sewer lines.
Engineers say the work will install new linings for nearly 2km of pipeline. They refer to a study from the 1990s that found corrosion on concrete points where sewage was drained and plans were made to replace those points.
Work begins near Evans Street and ends near Hooker Road. Don’t expect digs, however. Officials said a process called trenchless technology is used to “install manhole-to-manhole lining without digging the sewer system”.
A contractor in Virginia will carry out the replacement project as it was the lowest bidder.
