Help us Name the Drill!
Want to take part in the biggest underground event in Greenville history? Then come out this Saturday to Dig Greenville’s BIG Skate Day at Ice on Main on Saturday. That is when ReWa will be hosting a Name the Drill contest.
Community members are invited to submit their name ideas during the contest that will run through Saturday, December 9th on Dig Greenville’s web page. ReWa staff members will also be onsite at Ice on Main to share information about Dig Greenville and introduce the drill design. A contest winner will be chosen on Friday, December 15, 2017, and the winner will receive recognition and a ReWa prize pack.
The yet-to-be named drill is a cartoon rendering of the machine that will be used to bore the mile-long tunnel 100 feet below ground for ReWa’s Dig Greenville wastewater conveyance improvement project. The cartoon drill will serve as an education and outreach mascot for the duration of the Dig Greenville project, encouraging residents to learn about the updates and improvements to Greenville’s infrastructure happening beneath their feet.
The drill’s friendly design was also determined through a contest, held in partnership with Greenville Health System over the summer. Children were invited to design the face of the drill, and three winners, Jasmine, Janiah, and Isaac were chosen out of over 70 submissions. The resulting drill is a combination of all of the winners’ designs.
Construction on the Dig Greenville project is scheduled to begin in early 2018. For more information, visit www.rewaonline.org/diggreenville, and follow the project updates on Facebook and Twitter.
