Local News

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Renewable Water Resources announced the completion of their underground tunnel where piping will be laid as part of the DIG Greenville project.

This is ReWa’s largest ever waste water conveyance project.

Project Manager Jason Gillaspie said this project has been in the works since 2018 and will address the city’s growing sewer needs for the next century.

The tunnel boring machine began digging in Cleveland Park in downtown Greenville and dug through granite about 100 feet underground over to Westfield Street near the Kroc center.

Now that the tunnel, which is just over a mile long, is finished a 7-foot in diameter fiberglass pipe will be installed, Gillespie said.

The project is slated for completion in Spring of 2021.
