Port City will spend millions on sewer upgrade

GREENVILLE — Greenville Mayor John Cox says the city will undertake a multi-million dollar, five-year program to upgrade the aging sewer system.

Cox tells the Delta Democrat Times the city is working with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality to develop a plan to fix the system.

Cox says officials hope to eliminate sewer overflows and come into compliance with federal law.

The EPA and the MDEQ inspected the sewer system in January. Last week the city submitted a required report to the EPA detailing the city’s financial status and its initial approach to addressing the sewer problems.

The project is expected to cost between $8 million to $13 million. Cox says city officials have not yet determined how they will pay for the project.
