Dec. 30, 2011

Plant will benefit the health of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

Delmar, a town located in both Maryland and Delaware, has opened a new state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility at a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included dignitaries from Delaware, Maryland and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Officials were joined by representatives from local construction and engineering companies who worked for more than a year to transform the outdated facility to an innovative, effective wastewater treatment plant that protects the health and safety of families and provides significant clean water benefits for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Delmar Mayor Michael Houlihan was joined by Gov. Jack Markell, Sen. Tom Carper, Senator Chris Coons, EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin, Maryland Department of the Environment Deputy Secretary for Planning and Policy David A. Costello, Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary Collin O’Mara and other officials to announce the expansion and upgrades at the facility.

“Here in Delmar, we celebrate efforts by two towns in two states to make clean water a top priority,” said Markell. “Investments made here at the Delmar wastewater treatment facility pay tremendous dividends. They are supporting local jobs and businesses while providing clean water that protects the health of families and helps ensure the water quality of our precious rivers and streams and Chesapeake Bay Watershed.”
