WORK CONTINUES ON SEWER LINE NEAR PAULS FRIENDLY CITY
A sewer line leak has kept city crews busy all weekend and will likely take till the end of the week to repair completely. We spoke with Greenville City Manager Dave Wiley who said the break was due to the age of the pipe, which is around 40 years. The pipe is one of the deeper in the city at 23 feet in depth and has caused no sewer back ups or flooding, and the city has by-passed the pipe in the meantime to safeguard from residential back ups. It’s unknown what the final cost of the repairs and replacements will be.
