Welcome to the City of Greenville’s Engineering Division web site. It is our intent
to help you successfully navigate through this web site to access engineering related
information. This Division is responsible for civil engineering, environmental engineering,
traffic engineering, and construction inspection for the City of Greenville. Our goal is to be of service to you!
The Engineering Division plans, designs, and constructs many different types of
projects associated with our Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and development.
These projects include infrastructure improvements associated with storm water drainage,
sanitary sewer, roadways and intersections, sidewalks, resurfacing, and streetcapes.
Additionally, this Division has responsibility for the implementation of on and
off-site improvements to support residential and commercial development throughout
One of our strategic initiatives is to help you with our site grading permit process
The Division provides civil, environmental and traffic engineering reviews of site
grading permits and works very closely with the
City’s Building and Zoning Department on the review and approval of these
The City of Greenville has 'Delegated Review Program' status with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC
DHEC) and we can help you with environmental permitting requirements for
storm water and sanitary sewer associated with commercial projects.
This Division also provides information and applications on street and alley abandonment,
availability of sanitary sewer, storm water and sanitary sewer easements, and encroachment
permits for work located within the public right-of-way (Construction Inspection).
This division also reviews and approves Summary Plats as a pre-requisite to recording
with the County of Greenville.
Please contact my administrative staff to schedule an appointment to meet with me
or my staff if you need assistance with your project, information about a project,
or a review of your plat.
In closing, I value your comments about how we are doing and customer service is
very important goal for the City of Greenville.
