Bill Grider, Greenville Public Works superintendent, told WGEL that the project is progressing nicely and should be done in a matter of weeks, weather permitting.

Grider said the project should greatly improve water service and water availability for fire protection. He said the area has a dead end water line and, especially late in the evening when not a lot of people are using water, the line experiences bad water quality. Residents sometimes call the city regarding a bad odor or taste and the hydrants must be flushed. The system will now be on a loop, which will offer more pressure. Additional hydrants are being added as well.
