Walhalla water project set for ’14
Counting Streetscape and the quest for a new supply, water projects are likely to keep Walhalla busy in 2014. The replacement of old utility lines in the four-block section destined for Streetscape, as well as the continual effort by the city to find a new source of water get the most attention. But there’s an approximate $400 thousand upgrade that Utilities Superintendent Scott Parris says remains in the works during the new year. Last summer the South Carolina Department of Commerce announced a grant of $387,747 for phase two of the City of Walhalla—Chicopee Mill Village water upgrade. Parris says that money remains set aside for Walhalla. And, he said, once the design work for the project is finished, contractors’ bids will be advertised to replace the aging lines along four streets in the mill village. The work is likely to start on Verner Street.
