The Delaware Department of Parks and Recreation has turned to the Delaware Clean Water State Revolving Fund to replace more than 6,200 feet of cracked sewer pipes at Cape Henlopen State Park. The 102-year old pipes were allowing groundwater and stormwater to infiltrate the lines, forcing the pumps to work overtime to treat excess flow and increasing the risk of system failure.
To date, the project is yielding impressive results. In April 2015 the treatment system processed 74,000 gallons of wastewater compared to only a million gallons in April 2014.
