DELCORA Enters Agreement with EPA to Invest in Major Infrastructure Improvements in the City of Chester

The Delaware County Regional Water Quality Control Authority has entered into an agreement with the federal US EPA to invest in major infrastructure upgrades to reduce overflows from the City of Chester's combined sewer system.  This agreement binds everyone that sends wastewater flows to the Western Regional Plant to participate in the costs of this plan.  The Central Delaware County Authority sends the bulk of our flows to the Western Regional Plant.

The plan is called a Long Term Control Plan, LTCP.  It is currently under development.
