The workers in charge of keeping approximately 20 miles of underground sewer, water and steam lines properly maintained and running efficiently are Eric Greer, Appalachian State University's mechanical shop supervisor, and his team of 10 workers.

Greer has worked for Appalachian for 10 years and has been the team's supervisor for two years. He prioritizes the work orders received from the university and tells his workers where to go on campus to complete a job.

There are currently 100 open work orders for the mechanical shop, and these jobs can take anywhere from 30 minutes to multiple days to complete, depending on the severity of the situation.

"I keep everything organized while the guys are the ones doing all the work," Greer said. "They're the ones who make me look good."
