Fiber Optic Lines

Had Been Bored

Through Town's

Sewer Line There

BY SARAH GREGORY

STAFF WRITER

A portion of West Church Street near the intersection with North Main Street was closed for a time Tuesday while crews from the Greeneville Water Department worked to identify and fix another utility line's interference with Greeneville sewer lines in that area.

Motorists will still experience detours on West Church Street today as a separate, unrelated water leak is being repaired between Irish and Cutler streets.

"Someone pushed a line through ours at one point or another, and it's causing some sewer issues," Greeneville Water Department Shop Foreman William Ross told The Greeneville Sun on Tuesday afternoon.

The situation was first noticed because of sewer problems experienced at the General Morgan Inn, Ross said.

Crews used a jackhammer on Tuesday to break through concrete to reach the non-sewer line and identify it.

Water Department personnel lowered a special camera into the sewer line to identify the problem.

Ross said this morning that fiber optic lines from a company called Windstream Communications had been bored through the sewer line.

He said Water Department crews dug around the lines and were able to push the flexible fiber optic lines lower, out of the way.

The sewer line was then able to be repaired.

"Everything went well," Ross said, adding that repairs were finished just before 9 p.m. Tuesday.

MORE WORK TODAY

Water Department crews were working again today on West Church Street to repair a water leak reported near Teague Printing company.

A portion of the street between Irish and Cutler streets is closed while the problem is identified and repairs are being made, Ross said.
