The City of Greenwood has proposed a major sewer relief project, which if approved, would be the largest capital project in the city’s history.

Initial design plans for the Western Regional Interceptor call for the installation of 10 miles of sewer pipeline throughout White River Township, which is serviced by Greenwood’s sanitary sewer system. Total cost of the project could range from $60 to $70 million.

The Greenwood Board of Public Works has approved the construction of a new Department of Public Works building just south of the current campus on Washington Street.

With multiple drive-thru bays, centralized fluid and air compression distribution, a modernized water quality lab, welding shop, sign fabrication shop and integrated wash bay, the new facility will create significant efficiencies for city employees and overall operations.

Construction will begin in 2019 with substantial completion in 2020.

This former strip mall, which many residents consider an eyesore, was purchased by the Redevelopment Commission in November 2017. Demolition of the structures is complete, and the site has been prepared for future use.

As part of the Greenwood's recent Community Conversations series, residents provided input for potential future use of this and other new greenspaces around the city. Planning for the project is ongoing, and an announcement is anticipated for 2019.
