The right south bound lane on Highway 14 from Wade Hampton Boulevard to McLeskey Todd Pharmacy will be repaved in July.

A second Sludge Dewatering Belt Filter Press at CPW's Maple Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will provide more efficient processing of the waste solids plus provide redundancy for this critical treatment process. The existing floor slab is being cut for removal in this area to allow for installation of floor drain piping under what will eventually be a new floor slab.

The drain piping is in place that will be under the new floor slab (above photo). The existing building will be expanded 15 feet west to accommodate the new equipment.
Greer Commission of Public Works has awarded the Rogers Group the contract for $192,000. The Rogers Group purchased Greer’s three-generation Ashmore Brothers last September. CPW commissioners unanimously (3-0) approved the work at Tuesday’s monthly meeting.
“That’s been a long time coming,” said CPW General Manager Jeff Tuttle. “It’s good to get that job done.” The Department of Transportation approved the project.
The public will only be inconvenienced one day. “The public will be able to travel on it the same day,” said Mark Harvey, engineering and planning manager at CPW.
The repaving will go 10 inches down and 6.5 feet wide. “We’re not putting concrete down because it requires curing,” Harvey said.
Work will begin within the first two weeks of July and CPW and GreerToday will announce the work schedule to facilitate daily commuters.
Tuttle also shared with commissioners the purchase of 1.14 acres next to the Maple Creek Plant will not exceed $40,000. Commission approved the resolution to purchase.
CPW will build two sequential batch reactors to remove sediments and sludge from the wastewater. “We’re basically removing the organics from the water,” Harvey said.
