County Take Steps Toward Replacing Aging Sewer Line

According to the Anderson Independent Mail, Anderson County is taking the first steps toward replacing the nearly 40-year-old sewer line that serves most of its 4,000 customers.

The county’s finance committee will consider a $75,000 contract next week for preliminary design work on a new Five Mile Creek sewer line. The 1970s model serves parts of Clemson Boulevard, several large businesses and at least four schools.

The wastewater manager says it is too early to know the cost of the high-dollar line replacement.

On Monday, the finance committee will review a potential contract between the county and an engineering company with an office in Greenville and several others in the Southeast.

 

According to the contract, the company would “examine multiple options for upgrading the line, including replacement, rerouting of the force mains, pipe bursting, etc.” It will also examine the capacity of a local wastewater plant.

The contract is only for early-stage work and a report with engineers’ recommendations. It does not include the cost of any final design plans or any construction work on a sewer line. 

Anderson County’s budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year includes sewer-fee increases that take effect this month. Those fee increases will not go toward paying for a new sewer line.
