Work for Southern Disaster Recovery at the old “Coker Plant,” a.k.a. the former JP Stevens textile mill in Greenville, South Carolina is nearing completion. Over 30-thousand tons of concrete have been crushed on-site along with the “take down” of a 200-thousand pound water tower at the location. The water tower has been scrapped for recycling.
The new and improved site will soon be home to a tractor trailer warehouse terminal.
Here are some of our latest photos of a job well done!

In a story written by Bruce Smith from the Associated Press and featured on “THE STATE, South Carolina’s Homepage,” state transportation and emergency officials interviewed indicate it may be years before the final price tag of Winter Storm Pax is known. Hundreds of miles of roadways are being cleared. More than 460,000 trees have been counted, trees that are leaning or with broken branches over highways that must come down.
Forestry officials say the storm caused $360 million in damage to the state’s forestlands, an amount equaling the state’s total timber harvest in a year.
