Engineering DSM

Below is the latest revision of the City of Greenville Design and Specifications Manual published by the Engineering Division. You will also find a matrix of the current pre-approved details and notes for inclusion in land development plans for projects within the City. The purpose of the Design and Specifications Manual (DSM) is to establish minimum standards and provide guidance for the design and construction of land development projects and utility installations within the City of Greenville. The manual will assist developers, engineers, surveyors, contractors, inspectors and property owners in the best practical design for site development and redevelopment related activities.

Please continue to check this page to make sure your manual is up to date. The Engineering Division will post all amendments and revisions of the DSM to this page, and every reasonable effort will be made to notify the design community. If you have any questions or if you would like to set up a pre-permit conference, please call the Engineering Division at 864-467-4400. We look forward to working with you; we recognize the success of your development is linked to the success of our City.
