The Greenville City Council has taken action to continue the city’s manhole relining program.
A bid of $22,605 was approved from Spectra Tech to reline 11 sewer manholes in the city. Requests for bids resulted in only one being received.
Spectra Tech has been involved in previous manhole relining projects in Greenville.
Relining manholes reduces the amount of surface water which gets into the sewer system, thus reducing treatment costs.
The council passed a motion authorizing the city manager to execute a contract with Ressler and Associate, in the amount of $61,798, for new control panels at the sewer plant.
The expense was budgeted. City Manager Dave Willey told the council continued failures and, the fact that the current controls have become obsolete, led to the replacement of the controls at the plant.
He noted that new controls will also allow an opportunity for automation of sewer plant processes, data collection and reporting.
