Port City to upgrade water system

GREENVILLE — Millions of dollars could soon be on the way to get the brown tint out of Greenville’s water.

WXVT-TV reports that city officials, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are completing a plan to upgrade five of Greenville’s water wells over the next 16-18 months. The price tag is estimated to be $12 million to $18 million.

Mayor Heather Hudson says details of the plan are expected to be completed over the next three weeks.

Hudson says a formal announcement regarding the plan itself and funding will be made May 7.

  1. This is rediculous!!!! Greenville has had brown water for decades.. There are lot more places that money needs to be directed to, i.e roads, development, improvement, education. Clear water does nothing for Greenville’s economy. i can’t believe someone would put that in the top ten things to improve.
