Sanitary Sewer Testing

Don't be alarmed!!  You may see what appears to be anti-freeze in your local streams.  New Castle County is using a fluorescent green dye for tracing sanitary sewer problems.  The dye may end up in storm sewers, inlets, holding ponds, and streams.  The testing will be conducted in tributaries to Red Clay and White Clay Creek. Testing will continue through April of 2013 during normal business hours.  If you have any questions related to the testing, please contact Kevin Penoza at 302-395-5723.

I hope you have found this information useful and will share it with your family and friends.  As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.


New Castle County Councilman Tim Sheldon
