The company reported it faced challenges.
Strong winds and thunderstorms late last month damaged and interrupted operations at four of the utility’s water treatment stations. However, back-up generators helped keep the water flowing.
“In the case of the recent storms, we were able to reroute water flows from multiple sources and engage large-capacity generators to continue to deliver a safe water supply to our customers,” said Dian Taylor, CEO of Artesian Resources. “The heat likewise has not hampered our ability to serve our customers. Our extensive investments in infrastructure and upgrades and, more importantly, the expertise and dedication of Artesian personnel have kept service to our valued customers as reliable as ever during this already challenging summer.”
The Water Supply Self-Sufficiency Act of 2003 requires water utilities in New Castle County to verify every three years that they “have adequate supplies of water available, even during times of drought, to meet the present and future needs of this state on a continuing and sustainable basis.” The report marks the company’s fourth consecutive successful completion of the Water Supply Self-Sufficiency Act’s requirements.
