Suggestions to Prevent Frozen Pipes Winter weather is certainly here and along with it comes the risk of frozen pipes. To avoid frozen pipes, it is suggested: 1) unhook any hoses that are connected to outdoor faucets. 2) Allow a trickle of water to run from a faucet, especially at night 3) If you have a larger two-story home, let a small trickle of water also run from a second faucet upstairs 4) Open cabinet doors to let room temperatures reach exposed pipes under sinks. Please be advised the above aforementioned are only suggestions and not requirements to assist during the freezing cold temperatures. If a pipe does indeed freeze and burst, contact Town Hall at (410)896-2777 or (302) 846-2664 as soon as possible to have the water turned off as well as your plumber so that repairs may be made. If a pipe bursts after regular business hours (4:30 p.m.), call the Public Works on-Call number (443)359-0894.

NOTICE- The Town of Delmar Department of Public Works have closed the restrooms for the season at the parks. They will reopen in the early Spring.

Recent Snapshots
On December 10, 2011 the Town Officials hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially dedicate the new home for the Town's Municipal Building. The Town Hall renovation project was a major undertaking to convert the Bank of Delmarva building into a facility with a floor plan that would accommodate our governmental needs. One significant change that occurred as part of the remodeling project was the relocation of the building entrance to the west side of the structure facing Pennsylvania Avenue. The Town received grant funds from Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant which provided many high-tech features to ensure our new facility is energy efficient. This project was funded by local and federal funds.
Delmar's new state-of the-art wastewater treatment facility was unveiled on December 20, 2011 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included dignitaries from Delaware, Maryland and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.The facility was originally built in the late 1980's; the plant was expanded to treat 30 percent more wastewater than the old treatment facility. A total of 850,000 gallons of wastewater per day which will meet the capacity needs of Delmar now and into the future. The facility was upgraded to include the addition of biological and enhanced nutrient removal systems that effectively reduce pollutants-nitrogen and phosphorus loadings from entering the waterways that drain into the Chesapeake Bay. This project was funded by local, state and federal funds.
