Current Suspected Overdose Deaths in Delaware for 2021: Get Help Now!
E. coli bacteria were confirmed in the water supply on 07/24/2021. These bacteria can make you sick, and are especially a concern for people with weakened immune systems.
Bacterial contamination can occur when increased run-off enters the drinking water source (for example, following heavy rains). It can also happen due to a break in the distribution system (pipes) or a failure in the water treatment process.
We plan to disinfect the well immediately to kill the bacteria. We will inform you when tests show no bacteria are present and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within one week.
For more information, please contact Byron Burger at 302-643-9282, or Kevin Cottman, Environmental Health Specialist III with the Office of Drinking Water at (302) 741-8630. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by bacteria and other disease-causing organisms are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
