Brandywine Hundred sewer upgrade approved, NCC avoids millions in EPA fines - News Journal

SEWER UPGRADE
New Castle County Council voted Tuesday to spend $1.45 million on sewer maintenance to help its aging infrastructure meet newer wastewater guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency. The money will come out of the county's sewer reserve account to fund the first year of the program. The county will raise the sewer rate by 5 percent next year to pay for the rest of the program, officials said. One goal of the program is to close the last remaining sewer outfall to the Delaware River. Raw sewage that has been diluted by rainwater is released from the pipe into the river when the sewer system is overwhelmed during heavy storms. The EPA fined the county $100,000 earlier this year for its overflow. The vote was 11-2 with Councilmen David Tackett and Jea Street dissenting.
