Partnering for Solutions

When the town of Milton, DE was seeking a way to meet the present and future wastewater needs of its residents affordably, it found a partner in Middlesex Water and Tidewater Utilities. The town of Milton awarded a contract to Tidewater to own and operate its wastewater collection and treatment systems. A new state-of-the-art treatment plant was constructed to serve approximately 1,140 customers as well as potential new customers projected in areas surrounding the town. The plant utilizes oxidation ditch technology which is designed to provide a wastewater effluent that meets the highest standards of quality required in Delaware's environmentally sensitive coastal areas. Tidewater upgraded several pumping stations and performed system repairs and weatherproofing. Our team offered a customized solution that increased system reliability providing long-term benefits to the environment and the local economy.
