Greenwood County has received a Community Development Block Grant Grant for $700,000 to pay for sewer upgrades in the Sullivan Street area.

Ruth LaForge, community development director for the Upper Savannah Council of Governments, notified Greenwood County Council of the award during council’s administration and finance committee meeting on Tuesday. LaForge said the grant would be passed to Greenwood Metropolitan District, who will match the grant with $165,155. There is no cost to the county.

The project, which totals $865,155, will upgrade the sewer lines on Sullivan Street, Sullivan Court, Jacob Street, Pierce Avenue, Addison Avenue, Holman Street and Richard Street. About 4,650 linear feet of existing clay sewer pipe will be replaced by eight-inch PVC sewer pipe.

LaForge said about half of the pipe to be replaced is along roadways. GMD will also be updating their easements to 25 feet during the project, according to LaForge.

LaForge told council that this is the seventh straight CDBG grant which has passed through the county to GMD. The total of those seven grants is about $3.7 million, LaForge said.
