GREENVILLE, S.C. – On the morning of July 19th, you’ll find Dig Greenville construction manager Steve O’Connell kicked back and relaxed in Coffee Underground eager to answer any and all of your questions regarding the expansive Dig Greenville project.
From 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Sippin’ with Steve is the first of many unique opportunities that community members will have to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee with an engineer straight from this large-scale project. Black & Veatch’s O’Connell is the construction manager responsible for managing the onsite resident engineering and inspection personnel, community relations and contractor coordination.
O’Connell will be providing informative explanations regarding Dig Greenville, the largest ever underground sewer tunnel project in Greenville history. This wastewater conveyance project will feature a roughly one-mile long gravity sewer tunnel that will be approximately 100 feet below ground spanning from Westfield Street to Cleveland Park in Downtown Greenville.
“With a project of this size, we want our community to feel like they’re in the know about the details,” O’Connell said. “This wastewater system is going to serve a large portion of the Upstate for 100 years, and we want to make sure everyone that has questions is given a space to receive answers.”
