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.
