Water Supply Coordinating Council


House Bill 203, establishing a Water Supply Coordinating Council, passed the 142nd General Assembly and was signed by the Governor on Aug. 4, 2003. This legislation amended Chapter 13, Title 26, Subsection 1305 of the Delaware Code.

The Legislation established a Water Supply Coordinating Council with statewide representation, chaired by the Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC).

The Council has achieved its goal of water supply self-sufficiency in northern New Castle County by 2010, as directed by law, and has completed the water supply plan for southern New Castle County.

In accordance with Senate Bill 72, passed by the 145th General Assembly which extended the life of the council, progress reports shall be prepared and submitted no less than annually concerning current work on water supply and water demand plans for Kent County and Sussex County. House Bill 183, stating the Council is scheduled to conclude its work by January 31, 2022, passed the 148th General Assembly.
