Investments at the facility were made possible by a collaborative effort among the states of Delaware and Maryland, the EPA, and the Town of Delmar. The improvements have long-lasting benefits – protecting the health and safety of families, ensuring cleaner, healthier water quality for our waterways, while creating and supporting jobs.

Local construction and engineering companies that worked for more than a year to transform the outdated facility will attend the celebration.

The Town of Delmar will offer a tour and photo opportunity of the treatment facility.
