Kent County Regional Resource Recovery Facility - Operational Issues:

Recently, the Kent County Regional Resource Recovery Facility (KCRRRF) experienced a mechanical malfunction in one of the aeration basins. As a result, substandard effluent is being discharged from the KCRRRF. The Department of Public Works notified DNREC and performed everything within its power to treat to the wastewater.

On July 19, 2017, DNREC issued an order restricting the recreational harvesting of mollusk and bivalve shellfish. The restriction will be active until the DNREC feels the water quality is safe to resume the harvesting of shellfish.

The Kent County Department of Public Works is working diligently to correct the malfunction and return the KCRRRF back to normal operation. We appreciate your patience in this matter.

Additional information about the shellfish harvesting restriction can be found, here: ?
