New Castle County Receives Federal Funding For Sewer Project

New Castle, DE – County Executive Chris Coons joined U.S. Senator Tom Carper and other officials to announce federal funding of $300,000 towards the Shellpot Creek Sewer Interceptor Rehabilitation Project. 

 “New Castle County is responsible for maintaining more than 1,800 miles of sewer line, and we complete almost 15,000 work orders relating to sewer maintenance annually,” said County Executive Coons.  “Thanks to our congressional delegation and the EPA, we are able to move forward with the rehabilitation of the Shellpot Creek interceptor which serves 20,000 Brandywine Hundred residents,” he added. 

“Maintaining these lines is crucial for New Castle County,” said Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.).  “Today, the county is addressing an aging infrastructure problem and I am happy, along with the rest of the congressional delegation, to help secure funding for such an important project.”

“We are fulfilling our promise to rehabilitate and improve the Brandywine Hundred sewer system,” said County Councilman Bob Weiner.  “Just last year, county crews made improvements to 102 manholes, and the Shellpot Creek project will further ensure the system continues to operate safely,” he noted.  

 The seven-mile Shellpot Creek interceptor is nearing the end of its 50 year lifespan.  With the help of improved materials, the rehabilitated interceptor will last another 50 years or more.  The project, which is currently in the design stage, is expected to begin construction in 2009, and is projected to cost $7 million to complete.
