About Dig Greenville


Dig Greenville is ReWa’s largest wastewater conveyance project that will address some of the county’s 100-year sewage needs. It will feature a gravity sewer tunnel, 100 feet below ground, 11 feet in diameter, spanning from Westfield Street to Cleveland Park in Downtown Greenville. This unique project will serve the downtown area up into the northern part of the county.

This Project is Administered by SC Department of Health and Environmental Control’s State Revolving Fund Section. This project is partially funded with EPA funding.

The Reedy River Basin Sewer Tunnel (RRBST), or also known as Dig Greenville, is a wastewater project to alleviate the current risks of backups in the City of Greenville’s wastewater collection system during peak wet-weather events. The RRBST receives flow upstream at Riley Street, near the Kroc Community Tennis Center, and delivers flow westward to the existing system in Cleveland Park. The tunnel excavation is approximately 11 feet, approximately 6,000 feet long, and will house a 7-foot diameter fiberglass reinforced carrier pipe to convey peak wet-weather flows.

 

The RRBST will provide:

Mitigation of risk backups and overflows in existing system, additional storage and capacity during wet weather events, upgrades to meet potential future capacity needs and demands on current system.
